The "ck" Sound

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the “ck” sound.


Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Ok, let’s get started.


Today’s Letter Sounds


Sometimes, the letters C and K work together to make an even stronger sound at the end of words. Have them say the “ck” sound as they point to the letters:


ck

ck

ck


Word Practice


Now let's work on “blending” letter sounds into words. Your child can start slowly by saying each sound individually, but each time, they should try to say it just a bit faster.


Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:


k i ck

k i ck

kick


And:


th i ck

th ick

thick


Did they get it right? If they're still reading it as "thuh-ih-kuh" by the end of the sequence, ask them to read it faster until they are saying the word "thick" without adding any extra sounds.


Let's do a few more:


s o ck

s ock

sock


And:


l u ck

l uck

luck


And:


sh a ck

sh ack

shack


Silly Sentence Challenge


If you think your child is ready, see if they can read these:


Cluck cluck went the duck.


Tick tock went the clock.



If they read them smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them keep working until they get it right.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time,
