What are silent letters?
This flashcard set can be a great resource for teaching silent letters in first, second and third grades.
Silent letters are letters in words that children will see but not hear when reading words. These can be tricky because the spelling patterns must be memorized as there is often not a trick as is found in many other words.
Within these silent letter flashcards, you will find words with the silent letters of b, c, d, g, h, k, l, p, t and w.
Using these silent letter flashcards
You will find these silent letter flashcards in four formats.
The download includes:
- each silent letter on a card
- a picture for each silent letter on a card
- an silent letter next to a picture on a card
- a word containing the silent letter on a card
Some ideas for using these cards include:
Begin with the cards containing the silent letter and picture on one card. Continue by saying the name of the picture and then identifying the silent letter.
Have your child name the picture on the card. They can then identify the silent letter in the word. You might then have your child write the letters on a whiteboard so that they are matching the letters with the word.
Once your child has mastered this task, they can try naming a word with the silent letter without the picture clues. You might ask them to make a list of words they know with the silent letter.
These cards can also be used as a matching activity. Have your child match the silent letters with the picture. Extend the activity by playing a go fish style game or a memory game with these cards.
