Learning how to read can be quite tricky for your little students, especially with all those words that don’t quite follow the regular rules of pronunciation. You can begin easing their confusion a bit by teaching them that some words have consonants that we do not pronounce when we read them. Examples of these words are ‘knife’ and ‘knob’. Ask your child if they can give you some more examples like these ones. Such consonants are called silent letters. Now, follow the words with silent letters in this printable pdf to get through the maze.
When learning to read and write, silent letters are a tough topic to tackle since we don’t sound out the letter when we say the word aloud. Help your little learners master reading silent letters like «b» or «k» with this vividly illustrated worksheet! While working, read the sentences and fill in the blanks, selecting the correct word and checking the box. Read all the way to the bottom of the page, and then go back to review the words that contained the silent letters!
