Teaching Tips for “Silent Letters”

• Make an on-going list of words containing silent letters. Throughout the year, the class may point out words containing silent letters. Add these to the list.

• Add a spelling notebook entry entitled “Silent Letters.”

• Cross out the silent letter in words to show that they don’t make a sound. When making word cards, write the word in blue. Cross out the silent letter with a red marker.

• Decorate a shoe box, where children can add new “silent letter” words.
