Spelling Rule: -k or -ck?

This spelling rule applies to the END of words and is only reliable with single-syllable words.
It states that when you hear the /k/ sound at the end of a word AND the /k/ immediately follows a short vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u), it is spelled ck.
If it is preceded by a long vowel (creek/take) or consonant (desk), it is spelled with a k.
This also applies to the individual parts of compound words (e.g. backpack).
