fill up a cell array with string elements

I have to write a function that puts the words of a string in a cell array.
I've made the following script.
I already get a cell array with the right amount of cells, but they are all filled up with the first word of the string.
How do I get this right?
function [words] = giveWords(sentence)
k = split(sentence);
words = cell(1,length(k));
words(1,:) = k(1,:);
end

This is all you need
words=split('this is a sentence.')

or use cellstr(split("This is a sentence"))

Replace last 2 lines with
[words(:)] = {k{:}};
