ck or k Spelling rule

ck or k Spelling rule

Ck or k spelling rule is an incredibly useful and important spelling rule which helps children spell words easily. I usually introduce this rule after The Double Consonant rule or The Floss rule.

This ck and k spelling rule applies when we hear the /k/ sound at the end of a single syllable word. You might want to check the detailed ‘Spelling rule ck’ post and download the free anchor chart to make things simpler.

The rule is really simple and is limited to single-syllable words. We write -ck when we hear the /k/ sound immediately after a short vowel.

The letter k comes after everything else. Everything else could be a long vowel sound or a diphthong or a consonant.

The letter k at the end of a word is a rule and the -ck at the end of a word is an exception for short vowel words. I highly recommend that you try the -ck rule worksheets with your child before attempting the ones that I will be sharing in this post.
