Word Mapping Have

I used to think the word ‘have’ was an irregular word. After all, the silent e doesn’t make the vowel say its long sound.

Well, it turns out that silent e has many jobs. One of the jobs of silent e is to keep words from ending in the letter v.

To map the word have with your child, you:

  1. Say the word ‘have.’
  2. Ask your child to repeat the word.
  3. Tap the sounds in have with fingers or a manipulative like Legos
  4. Say the sounds are /h/ /a/ /v/.
  5. Draw three lines on a whiteboard.
  6. Ask your child how to spell each of the sounds.
  7. Explain the silent e rule that words in English can’t end in v.
  8. Ask your child to write the complete word and then read it.

Dab and Dot the Sight Word Have Worksheet

My kindergarten reading students love these Dab and Dot Sight Word Worksheets.

Your child will work with you to color code the bubble letters. I suggest you have your child color each sound (not letter) a different color.

Your child could color:

  • H can be purple
  • A can be green
  • VE can be blue

This helps your child see how the letters represent different sounds.

I prefer to use the stoplight colors to color code with my children and students. So we color-coded:

  • H is green for /h/ because it is a regular sound spelling
  • A is green for /a/ because it is a regular sound spelling
  • V is green for /v/ because it is a regular sound spelling
  • E is yellow to help my students slow down and remember the new rule.

Then your child will use dot markers or bingo daubers to dot all the word have. They simply read the words in the bubbles. If it is the correct word, have, they will dot it. If not, they leave it blank.

No dot markers? No problem! Just use crayons or markers to color in the circles.

Spell and Read the Sight Word Have Worksheet

If you have older children who are still learning their sight words, you are not alone. I actually made these worksheets for my daughter when she was in first grade.

She was having a terrible time spelling anything! The following year, we got her diagnosed with dyslexia.

These worksheets are great if your child can read the word, but cannot spell the sight words. But they’re also helpful for kids learning to read and spell. If you can spell it, you’re almost guaranteed to read it!

Like in the Dot the Sight Words, you start by having your child color code the letters in the word.

Then your child will:

  • trace the word have
  • spell the word have
  • fill in the word have into two sentences
  • create their own sentence with have

This gives your child so many opportunities to build their skills with the word have.
