Silent Letters


Our Silent Letters lesson plan enhances students’ spelling ability by teaching them about silent letters in words. Students practice identifying words with silent letters and spelling words that include silent letters.


Our Silent Letters lesson plan explores the presence of silent letter sounds in the English language. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create as many words as they can, highlighting the silent letters. Students are also asked to fill in the blanks in provided words with a silent letter in order to make a full word.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to recognize and identify words with silent letters. The students will also be able to correctly spell grade-level words that include silent letters.
