Spelling with C and K

I'm currently teaching differences between spelling with C and K.

- How C makes the "s" sound before e, i, y

Does anyone have any fun activities to help this concept "stick"...songs, games, etc?

Thanks!

The students were to be detectives and be on the look out for words following that rule. I posted a big sheet of paper on the wall and every time a student found a word following that rule they could write it on the paper. They were so tuned into words with c making the s sound we soon had our paper filled with such words.

My students call it the i key rule. For some reason it seems to help them remember. I made this at magnet at Vista to help them remember the rule.

that c has the /s/ sound when it is paired with stick vowels (i, y, and e - you make the 'stick' before you make the round part) and c has the /k/ sound when paired with the round vowels ( a, o, u). Like everything else with the English language, I'm sure there are exceptions but most words follow this rule...

My co-teacher shared this with me from her previous school:
Fat Cat and Skinny Kitten
/c/ before a, o, u (fatter, rounder letters) and /k/ before i, e, y (I make them look skinny!)

I LOVED the iKey way! That sounds pretty cool.
