The Hidden Meaning of Silent Letters: Strategies to Decipher Meaning and Spelling
Monday, January 16th, 2023
9:30am-12:30pm ET (Eastern Time)
Students are often thrown off by silent letters, which appear to not correspond to any sound in the word’s pronunciation. Because many students aren’t aware of the patterns or meanings behind silent letters, they resort to guessing when spelling unfamiliar words. How can we efficiently teach them when to use “night” versus “knight” or “sent” versus “scent”?
By teaching students about the meanings behind silent letters, we can help them to become more successful spellers! Discover the patterns that anchor meaning to spelling and minimize the need for rote memorization. During our training, Executive Director Jennifer Hasser will present strategies to assist students of all ages and stages. Learn activities for mapping the connection between phonemes and graphemes that are thoughtful and fun! Attendees will gain digital materials.
Attendees will receive a Certificate of Attendance and digital materials via email after the event.
