Hidden in Plain Sight… Silent Letters Are Everywhere!

Silent letters are letters that are not pronounced when you say a word. This means that you cannot hear the letter making a sound within the word. More than 60% of English words have silent letters in them! Thankfully there are some basic rules about which letters are silent before or after other letters.

This teaching presentation has been designed to help explain some of the most common silent letter rules to your students. For example:

  • Silent k: The letter k is often silent when it is before the letter n at the beginning of a word.
  • Silent w: The letter w is often silent when it is before the letter r at the beginning of a word.
  • Silent g: The letter g is often silent when it is before the letter n at the beginning of a word.
  • Silent b: The letter b is often silent when it is after the letter m at the end of a word.
  • Silent l: The letter l is often silent when it is before the letter f, the letter k or the letter m at the end of a word.
  • Silent n: The letter n is often silent when it is after the letter ma t the end of a word.
  • Silent t: The letter t is often silent when it is after the letter s in the middle of a word.
