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.
