nk ending blends
Trying saying the sounds for “n” and “k” together. Not the easiest sound to say. And if it isn’t easy to say, that makes it even harder for our little ones to read. That means, we have to give our little readers extra practice with fun nk ending blends. And that is what these this blends activity is designed to do. Use these handy, low prep clip cards as a final consonant blends games for kindergartners and grade 1 students.
nk words for kids
Clip cards require a little bit of cutting, but I love how they can be used over and over again.
- First, print them off on cardstock paper. I’ve found if I use regular paper, the cards get ripped and messed up easily. And this is especially true if you have a child that needs to develop better fine motor skills. They are trying so hard to get the clip on, that the paper gets a little mangled in the process.
- Next, cut them out.
- Finally, gather up some clothes pins and you are ready to go.

Now it is time to practice saying and reading words that end with “nk”!
But before we jump in, you may want to warn your child or one irrugulartiy with these “nk” words.
Write out the words bank, sank, tank, thank, and drank on a piece of paper or white board. Read them out loud to your little one and ask them if they notice anything about the vowel sound. Hopefully, they notice that the “a” is making a “long a” sound.

Then write out words like….
- think and sink
- honk and monk
- dunk and junk
Once again, read the words and ask them what they notice with the vowel sound. Did they see that the “i”, “o”, and “u” all make the short sound next to the “nk”.
Once that quick lesson is taught. Let you little ones read the words on the clip cards and place a clothes pin underneath the picture that matches the word.
And just like that, your little ones get some great practice reading “nk” ending blend words.
