Phonics words list is a great tool to improve reading and spelling. These phonics word lists show our little readers that words are often related by a pattern, a spelling pattern. Understanding this pattern makes them better at reading and spelling.
We have to make our little readers understand that sounds can be represented by multiple spelling patterns. Teaching children the spelling patterns for different sounds is necessary to encode or decode a word.
For now, let’s focus on the spelling rule ck.
c makes the sound /k/
k makes the sound /k/
ck also makes the sound /k/
/ck/ is read as one sound /k/
ck is used when we hear a /k/ sound right after a short vowel.
