Spelling end consonants: ff, ss, ll, ck

Remember, that these consonants need to be doubled after a short vowel:

f > ff s > ss l > ll c > ck

But not if there is already a consonant after them:

left   craft last   risk help   belt milk   sank

Use these rules to work out which of these letters complete the half-finished words below:

f ff s ss l ll c ck

Type the whole word:

Worn by girls: dre__.
Worn by Scotsman: ki__t.
There's a cra__ in that cup.
Opposite of short: ta__.
End of a sleeve: cu__.
Not feeling well: si__.
A job to do: tas__.
Hard, not easily bent: sti__.
A loa__ of bread.
The apple is ripe, so pi__ it.
Excitement: thri__.
Opposite of hard: so__t.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
