Here are the actions for -ck.  /k/ like in duck.  They're holding their hands near their mouth to make a bill of a duck.

When the student is the helper, s/he 'teaches' or leads the others in the action for each letter cluster, as well as explaining various spelling rules.  They also love teaching the morning math corner.  This helps their self-confidence and makes them more aware of what is being taught.  It also helps them to practice being a leader.
