Investigate Words with Silent Letters: 'k' and 'g'

In this worksheet, students practise reading and spelling words with a silent 'k' or 'g'.

Worksheet Overview

Some words have letters that we don't pronounce (say out loud) when we read them. These are called silent letters.

 

someone knitting

The word knitting has a silent 'k'.

 

gnome

The word gnome has a silent 'g'.

 

We just have to learn which words have silent letters, but it might be helpful to remember that words with a silent 'k' or a silent 'g' usually have an 'n' straight afterwards.

 

Read these words carefully as you will need to spell them correctly in this worksheet. They all have either a silent 'k' or a silent 'g' in them.

knee

knife
