I have made these Silent e worksheets as i always struggle to find ones that can be used as a teaching aide as well. about 60% of English words contain silent letters. So its important for our students to learn how to spot them. There are some important rules that will help explain which letters are silent, but as with all English rules there are always exception to the rule. The term silent e refers to the use of an unpronounced E after another letter at the end of word.
However, as we will see later, there are many exceptions to this rules, as well as a number of other technical functions that silent e can perform.
