When do we use the "ck" spelling? At the end of a short word right after a short vowel. This deck in the "Crazy Cards for Starters" series helps you help children reinforce this spelling pattern by reading lots of words with -ck at the end in a FUN card game. Played just like the popular card game Crazy 8's, this "-ck" deck will keep your children on task - they won't even know they are learning! Also a really helpful tool to use for planning printing/sentence making activities.
