Word Search Worksheets

Word Search Worksheets offer fun spelling practice! This one features #spellingwords with silent letters.

Word search worksheets can provide an easy way for students to do some extra spelling practice. Why? For some reason, kids (and adults, too!) always seem to enjoy solving word search puzzles. Maybe it's because solving the puzzle is so much fun that it doesn't seem like real work!

As puzzle solvers work back and forth between the word list and letters in the word search diagram, they are looking for the correct spellings of words, again and again. What a sneaky (and fun) way to get some extra spelling practice in! Don't miss the links to our newest word search pages.

Silent Letter Search

Use the printable link to get the entire puzzle and word list. On it, you'll see that students must first supply the missing consonants, then look for the completed words in the puzzle.
