We often come across words like knife, knit, knot, knock, knap, knack, etc. Children try to blend the k and n sound together but ‘kn’ is not a consonant blend. It is in fact a digraph where you hear only one sound. The digraph kn is just another way to spell the sound /n/.
Let’s discuss the worksheets for kn words in detail.
In the first worksheet, read the kn words and highlight the kn sound. Remember to tell the kids that k is always silent in the kn words.
Have them read the kn words – knot, knit, knapsack, knee, kneel, knead, kick, knock, knoll, knob, knuckle, know, knickers, etc. and highlight the kn sound in each word.
Though there are a limited number of words with the kn sound, I noticed just often kids forgot that k is silent in the kn sound. They tried to blend the k and n sound. So, I decided to create this silent k worksheets Pack and take up this sound separately.
Identify the kn sound pictures and read the kn words in the word bank. Write the correct kn word next to its picture in the above worksheet.
In the last worksheet, identify the picture, and complete the kn words by pasting the tiles. The kn words are knoll, knot, knob, knit, know and knee. This 4 letter silent k worksheet is ideal for kindergarteners.
I am sharing another resource with you which is ‘My book about kn words.’
Circle the pictures with ‘kn sound’ on page 2. The pictures are knee, kangaroo, kneel, knead, knickers, know, kitten and knuckles. On page 3, write ‘kn’ and the words will ‘kn sound.’
The instructions to print are mentioned in the book. This book requires only 2 sheets to form an A5 size (approximately) book. The sheets will be printed on both sides. All the pages are numbered so there will not be any confusion.
In case, you have to print on both sides manually, print pages 1 and 8 and pages 6 and 3 first. On the reverse of pages 1 and 8, print pages 2 and 3. On the reverse of pages 6 and 3, print pages 4 and 5.
Since the print will be on both sides, use a thicker sheet.
I have also created ‘my book about ch words.’ Do check it.
On page 3, write ‘kn’ and the words will ‘kn sound.’ I have also created ‘my book about sh words.’ Do check it.
On the next two pages, children have to frame sentences using the words given. A sentence begins with a capital letter. This rule will help children understand the first word of the sentence. Sentences end with a period or full stop or question mark or exclamation mark. This will make punctuation rules clear and also help children frame sentences. Do not forget to color the pictures.
The last two pages are for writing sentences. Children have to write sentences with ‘kn words’ whose pictures have been provided. The ‘kn words‘ are the same that the children have traced on page 3.
I have also created ‘my book about all words.’ Do check it.
