The A-Z organizational device is used to frame many subjects and concepts in school and in life. From children just learning the ABC's as pre-readers to those learning to classify or organize based on subject - ABC's are important! ABC books provide a multitude of starting points for other activities. They can serve as an introduction to a new topic, an audience participation and interaction tool, and way to teach new vocabulary, and much more. And of course, A-Z organizational skills are the key to finding your way around in a library!
Included here is a beginning reader's lesson on ABC order, with the added fun of audience call and response!
