This ‘a + sk, ss and st’ spelling quiz informs elementary school children that when you say words with ask/ass/ast the ‘a’ sound is an ‘ar’ sound instead and is written as such. This spelling quiz will test children on these words.

The letter ‘a’ is pronounced ‘ah’ but if it comes before ‘sk/ss/st’ it changes to ‘ar’. This quiz will ask you to spell words where the ‘a’ sound has been changed to ‘ar’. Can you spell the missing word?
