ED is working on the /k/ sound. She really enjoys the word sort activities I’ve made for her, so this is a new set covering the hard K-sound with spellings c, k, ck, ch, cc and que.
- Words that use a c such as cat, scalp, cabin, picnic
- Words that use a k such as kite, sink, rake, king, milk, make, bark
- Words that use ck such as thick, neck, luck, pick, stick, ticket
- Words that use ch such as school, chorus, stomach, echo, chaos, monarch
- Words that use cc such as account, broccoli, hiccup, occupy, tobacco
- Words that use que such as plaque, technique, mosquito, and quesadilla
Of course, you can use the spellings that work best for your student. You don’t have to use them all!
As many of you know, we have used (and loved) All About Spelling (affiliate link) for years! ED (my youngest) is slowly making her way through the series. (My older two used this series as well!)
We don’t tend to use the spelling tiles quite as often these days (ED just wants to get to the writing!) but I’ll put a picture of that in for those who aren’t familiar with AAS. These days we tend to use spelling sorts and games as our manipulative these days… but during the first couple of years of the program all of my kids used the board. This program is really laid out logically and helped ME understand how words are put together and why! Eight thumbs up from the Homeschool Den (me and the 3 kids!!)
ED chose the theme this time – kittens and cats!! Seems appropriate, right?!! She used the k-sound spelling mat to sort the words.
We used the paw game boards to practice the spelling pattern. On her turn, I would read the word aloud. She would tell me the spelling and move to that space on the game board. We added in some cards like Move Ahead 4 or Lose a Turn to makes it more exciting!
Be sure to print out the spelling cards and game boards on cardstock. You can laminate them for durability for use in a classroom setting.
This spelling activity is $2.50.
