Scaffold Learning for First and Second Grade Students on how to order words in ABC Order. Using whichever list you choose, this resource can be used with all level Spelling Groups or Word Study Groups.
Writing words, one letter per block helps kids compare them with other words on the list. In addition, coloring in the words already used, creates an orderly system for students.
It is suggested to roll out this activity over several weeks as a whole class lesson, then again in cooperative groups, before having students do it independently as a Daily Five or Literacy Center. Investing the time in September will have students confidently completing their ABC order all year.
