‘ng’ and ‘nk’ sound are easily confused by children since they sound pretty similar. So, I decided to create these flashcards for ng and nk words.
These flashcards can also be used with dyslexic children to practice reading one-syllable ng and nk words. These flashcards can add fun to your lessons. Since “n” is a nasal sound, the vowel doesn’t make the vowel sound you expect in a closed syllable.
These flashcards can also be used when revisiting the sounds.
These 24 ng words flashcards can be complemented with my free pack of ng words worksheets. It is a pack of 13 worksheets which is perfect to introduce the ng sound.
-nk is an ending consonant blend or cluster. In this pack, there are 24 -nk sound flashcards. These -nk sound flashcards can be complemented with my free pack of –nk words worksheets. It is a pack of 6 worksheets which is ideal to introduce the -nk sound.
So, there are 16 A4 sheets in all. Eight sheets are with ng and nk words written in black. The next eight sheets have similar pictures and words but I have highlighted the ng and nk in each word so it is easier for kids to read. You can decide which ones to print depending on how comfortable your kids are.
There are 6 cards on each of the 16 A4 sheets. You will need to print these sheets and cut them into cards. Print these picture cards on card stock and laminate them for durability.
These flashcards will also enhance your child’s vocabulary. Do use these words in sentences so children can understand the meanings of the words. You can find nk and ng sound sentences.
The above worksheet has the ‘nk’ sound highlighted to make it easier for children to read. It also helps register the sound better.
I have also used a few 6 letter words which will challenge the children in a good way. I also have nk and ng words reading lists which you can find here.
