Alphabetical Order

During Skills Block over the past week, we have been learning how to put words in alphabetical order. We started the lesson out simple by just writing 6 words on cards. We used the first 6 letters of the alphabet. The students picked it up quickly and became pro's. Our next step was to pick random letters from the whole alphabet. This was a little more difficult for them. They learned strategies that would help them like using the word wall, or saying the alphabet softly to myself to help. This morning we moved it to the next step by using 6 words all starting with the same letter. The students learned to look at the second letter to put the words in order. Quiz your own child at home to see how they do.
