These "Clip-It" task cards focus on the spelling of /k/ at the beginning of a word. The cards are intended for students who need extra practice with the initial c/k rule in Orton Gillingham (or the "Kiss the Cat" rule in the Barton Reading and Spelling System), however, this activity can be used as a general resource for any classroom teaching initial /k/.
NOTE: Students must be explicitly taught the c/k spelling rule before using this resource!
Using clothespins or a different object/marker, students will mark the correct spelling for /k/ for the words provided. Students must think about the spelling rule for using c or k at the beginning of a word to help them decide which spelling is correct. A recording sheet and answer key are included for students to complete and check their answers independently.
This resource would be perfect for a classroom literacy center, small group instruction, or a 1:1 tutoring situation. The task cards are engaging and ready-to-use. Just print, laminate, & cut!
