Level 6-5

Silent letters: wr-, kn- beginnings

write, know, known, written, wrong, knife, knit, wrestle, knot, knock

This level focuses on two patterns: words beginning with wr or kn. In both of those patterns, the first letter is silent.

Our video below reminds students not to over-generalize this pattern -- most words beginning with an r or n sound don't have a silent w or k in front of them. But the ten words in this level all do, and as such, they are well worth practicing!

For students working through the levels in order, after beating this level, they have hit the halfway point of Rocket Spelling! 600 words mastered, 600 more to go. Time to check the awards tab or print a certificate!
