1. This review is in the form of a Wordspell. You are given the sixteen letters with which to spell twenty words, all of which contain [k]. You are also given blanks for the twenty words. We’ve given you a start by filling in the letters in each word that spell the sound [k]. Here the sixteen letters:

O U N I E R O P Y A D L T S R I

Here are the blanks for the twenty words:

Words with [k] spelled <qu>:

\begin{align*}& U && N && I && \text{Q} && \text{U} && E\\ & A && N && T && I && \text{Q} && \text{U} && E\end{align*}

Words with [k] spelled <q>:

\begin{align*}& L && I && \text{Q} && U && O && R\\ & L && I && \text{Q} && U && I && D\end{align*}

Words with [k] spelled <lk>:

\begin{align*}& T && A && \text{L} && \text{K}\\ & Y && O && \text{L} && \text{K}\\ & S && T && \text{A} && \text{L} && \text{K}\end{align*}

Words with [k] spelled <cc>:

\begin{align*}& O && \text{C} && \text{C} && U && R\\ & O && \text{C} && \text{C} && U && P && Y\\ & A && \text{C} && \text{C} && U && S && E\\ & A && \text{C} && \text{C} && O && U && N && T\\ & A && \text{C} && \text{C} && U && R && A && T && E\end{align*}

Words with [k] spelled <ch>:

\begin{align*}& A && \text{C} && \text{H} && E\\ & E && \text{C} && \text{H} && O\\ & \text{C} && \text{H} && A && O && S^*\\ & \text{C} && \text{H} && O && R && U && S^{**}\\ & S && \text{C} && \text{H} && O && O && L \\ & O && R && \text{C} && \text{H} && I && D^{***}\end{align*}

\begin{align*}^*\end{align*}Or chord. \begin{align*}^{**}\end{align*}Or chords. \begin{align*}^{***}\end{align*}Or anchor.

2. Here are some words that end in [k] Read them carefully and then fill in the blanks:

\begin{align*}& \text{knock} && \text{brook} && \text{walk} && \text{gigantic} \\ & \text{quick} && \text{hawk} && \text{folk} && \text{traffic} \\ & \text{wreck} && \text{earthquake} && \text{milk} && \text{zodiac} \\ & \text{picnic} && \text{provoke} && \text{rebuke} && \text{thunderstruck} \\ & \text{maniac} && \text{retake} && \text{shark} && \text{aftershock} \end{align*}

a. When a word ends in [k] with a long vowel in front of it, the [k] is usually spelled <k>.

b. When a word ends in a [k] with a consonant in front of it, the [k] is usually spelled <k>.

c. When a word ends in a [k] with a short vowel in front of it, the [k] is usually spelled either <c> or <ck>. If the word has only one vowel sound in it, [k] will usually be spelled <ck>, but if it has more than one vowel sound in it, the [k] will usually be spelled <c>.
