Silent letters picture books

Silent Letters Loud and Clear (much too long, some such as magic E are not good examples, not graded, and the story is not great, but could select a few things from it)

Silent letters songs

Silent Letters Make No Sound song (really a chant, but with a catchy chorus and easy to add your own examples to)

Silent K Song (more spoken than sung, but nice and simple)

That’s Why You’ll Never Hear the K Again song (nice idea for a story, good tune and okay vid, but a bit long for the very few examples)

Silent Letters are Sneaky song (nice country and western tune, but too little time giving examples and they missed a trick by not having the letters in the video all in context within words, so not really useable as it is)
