Words with Silent Letters

Silent letters can be challenging for students. Having a list to go to as you are helping students practice these words can be helpful in your planning.

I have worked to include words that will fit the needs of many students practicing this skill.

I have found that even in sixth grade, sharing words for students to sort can be a challenging and engaging activity. Students tend to like the puzzle part of this task. Many times, teamwork is required as they try to sort words into categories.
