Sneaky Silent Letters - FREEBIE

My kiddos have been working on their sneaky, silent letters. 

We started by reading the book Silent Letters Loud and Clear by Robin Pulver.

It is a really cute book where the students don't understand why they have to use the silent letters when they don't hear them. So they wrote a letter to the editor of the newspaper stating their case.  Well, the silent letters disappear and the letter makes absolutely no sense.  Moral to the story:  We NEED those sneaky silent letters!

To practice recognizing some of our words that have silent letters, I created a Sneaky Silent Letter Sort.

The fun fonts are from Kevin and Amanda.


Happy Tuesday!
