Practise identifying when to begin words with the letter K or the letter C with this printable two-page worksheet.

K Takes the Vowels I and E, C Takes the Other Three!

Have you ever used this spelling rule in your classroom to help your students remember when to begin words with the letter K, and when to use the letter C?

In English, different letters can be used to represent the same sound. The /k/ sound can be represented by the letters K and C. It takes a lot of exposure and repeated practice for our youngest students to know when to use which letter.

This worksheet has been designed to help your students identify when to use the letter C to make a /k/ sound, and when to use the letter K. It contains 11 examples of words with the initial letter missing. A visual representation of the word is also provided. Students are required to identify whether the initial letter should be C or K, then circle the correct letter. An answer sheet is also provided.

Scaffolding + Extension Tips 

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:

  • Guided group activity
  • Lesson exit ticket
  • Homework assignment
  • Whole-class review (via smartboard)

Challenge students who already understand the concept to compile lists of words that begin with the letters C and K.

Support students who need help understanding the concepts by providing visual reminders, such as a classroom poster or anchor chart.
