One of the tasks teachers face is teaching students spelling patterns in order for them to transfer the generalizations to unknown words. Without this knowledge, students are left to memorize which results in short-term success rather than long-term learning.  This deck of cards contains a set of pictures representing CVC words ending with the /k/ sound, spelled -k and -ck.  Students will spell the words by transferring their knowledge of this spelling pattern.  This activity is aligned to the Reading Foundational Skill: Phonics and Word Recognition and the Language Standard: Conventions.  The cards may be used with partners or as a teacher-led activity with a group of students.
