What educators are saying

I love editable worksheets and this is no different! I am excited to use these for virtually any lesson in any subject area!
We use these with our RTI reading group. They love doing these and they are easy to make for any topic we are reviewing.


Have you ever wished you could create exactly what you’re looking for in a color by code… and do it easily with the content you want to cover for your content area and grade level - no more just ‘making it work?’

Do you have such a variety of student abilities in your class that it makes it virtually impossible to use anything with the whole group?

Editable Color by Code is exactly what you need! It works for ANY grade level and ANY content area. Not only that, but you can easily differentiate content for students to meet them at just the right level without them ever knowing they have alternative work compared to their neighbor (no more feeling different from their classmates!).

Simply follow our teacher’s guide and fill in your content - hit print - and you have a just-for-you created resource  your students are sure to love (yes - even those upper grades - everyone loves to color!)!

You get a huge bang for your buck with this Editable Color by Code. Use it again and again - the possibilities are endless!

  • Teaching ways to make ten? ✅
  • Comparing parts of speech? ✅
  • Discovering beginning digraphs? ✅
  • Learning about different landforms? ✅
  • Practicing foreign language? ✅
  • Covering the layers of the earth? ✅
  • And SO much more!

Use for morning work, early finishers, small groups, formative assessment, at-home, work and more!

Teachers like you said…


“With Editable Color by Code, I love that I can differentiate the same activity page across each one of my small groups. All I do is edit the content for each group and print!”


“They were so excited to do these!  They wanted to complete the cute picture, even though they had to do a lot of skill practice to get the color code right. Very engaging, and they need the practice. These were so easy to make, copy, explain, and assign.”


“Color by number is just too fun! The kids love it! It helps them follow instructions and provides fine motor practice. I love it because I can use it for ANY content they need practice with! Great resource.”
