I Have, Who Has? A Silent Letters Game

Are you looking for a silent letters resource to use as a whole-class activity? Look no further! This whole-class game is the perfect way to keep your little learners engaged while consolidating their understanding of silent letters! 

This resource includes five different sets of game cards. Each set includes 24 “I Have, Who Has?” cards. 

  • Set 1: Mixed Silent Letters
  • Set 2: Silent W and Silent K
  • Set 3: Silent T and Silent H
  • Set 4: Silent G and Silent B
  • Set 5: Silent L and Silent N

How to Use This Silent Letters Activity

This game works best as a whole-group activity; however, it could also be used in a small-group setting. If used as a group activity, be sure to give each student multiple cards so that the game continues to flow as intended.

  1. Give one card to each student. If there are not 24 students in your class, provide a few students with an additional card. If you have more than 24 students in your class, have a few students share a card. 
  2. Once each student has a card, the student who has the “START” card begins the game by reading their card. The student who has the/word reads their card.
  3. The game continues until the last student reads the “STOP” card. You can choose to play again with the same set, or try with a different set of cards! 

For an extra challenge, why not time the students to see how long it takes to complete the game!

Use the dropdown arrow on the Download button to select the particular set of cards you wish to access. The mixed silent letters version of the resource will download as the default PDF.
