Final /k/ Sound Spelled -ck, -ke, or -k

I got a new transfer student this week that is much lower than my other students.  He's coming from another state and was able to be seen under the speech impaired label, so I'm not sure what his disability officially is right now.  He's in 3rd grade but only knows 26/40 preprimer sight words from Dolch list.  I gave him 1 minute to read a list of CVC words.  He read 12 words but only 5 of those words were read correctly.  He had trouble spelling basic CVC words and was not able to spell words with blends, diagraphs, or long vowels.  He can do basic addition but not basic subtraction and no problems with regrouping.  We're starting the process to get him tested and given the correct diagnosis.  In the meantime, I'll be seeing him daily.

I've been racking my brain this weekend on how I can give him the individual instruction he needs plus teach the other students.  I have an aide for about 40 min in the morning who will be able to work with him.  I just don't know what to do in the other times.  I'm open for suggestions if anyone has any.

This week my students will be working on spelling and reading words that have the final /k/ sound, which can be spelled -ck, -ke, or -k.  My students have a difficult time spelling words with the final /k/ sound, and I see a lot of this in their writing - mack for make and tack for take.  I hope that this week will help reinforce these skills, and it will start to sink in.  I've made 3 games for this week, and they all have a recording sheet.

  1. I love them!! I just did the final k unit like 2 weeks ago! So sad I didn't have it! Next year! =)

  2. Thanks so much! I was wondering if you have a daily chart to use with your special needs student during the day. I need to document a student's work habits during each subject area so we can start the RtI process. If you have something that you are able to share, can you please email me at

    Thanks so much,

  3. Thanks so much! I see the links for only 2 of the games - the 3rd link is just a repeat, is there a link for the Kick It! game that I'm missing? I'm going to be teaching this in the next few weeks, so this is super handy, thank you!

  14. Sounds like dyslexia to me - maybe encourage him to get tested or do they do testing at your school? Most schools don't. Kids with dyslexia do not do well on timed tests. Hope he gets the help he needs!
