Students will use alphabetical order to answer each question. This fun practice allows the students to be up and moving while practicing ABC order to the first, second, third, and fourth letter.
*** A practice sheet has been added for homework, review, or assessment. ***
1. Print the ABC Order Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock or brightly-colored paper and cut them apart along the dotted lines.
2. Make copies of the ABC Order Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the ABC Order Scavenger Hunt cards around your classroom where students will be able to find them. You can put them on chairs, on the computer keyboard, on the back of your classroom door, on the sides of student desks, on the chalkboard, or wherever you like.
(I have used “posting the scavenger hunt cards” as a reward in my classroom. It is a favorite reward!)
4. Students have to search the room and find all of the sentence cards to answer the questions. You can differentiate by having students work alone or with a classmate.
With the Scavenger Hunt game I have the students complete it as part of a rotation during reading groups. I only have 4 or 5 students walking around with clipboards to locate the sentence cards and write their answers. Students needing extra support can be paired with a partner for this activity. I have also done similar activities with the whole class or as a filler for early finishers, especially if you made the cards a little bit tricky to find. My students enjoy this activity.
**** I have added a small cover for you to use when storing your scavenger hunt cards to help you with organization.
