Yes! It's true! ABC order activities for the entire year of holidays and themes! But is ABC order a standard under the Common Core? You bet it is!
These activities meet the demands of the Common Core. Reasoning and making sense is a major focus in the Common Core. ABC order requires students to read, reason, and sort the words according to their relative placement in or on the alphabet. Vocabulary acquisition is a major standard, as is developing an awareness of and participating in systematic reasoning tasks. Not only is ABC order a great reasoning task, but it is a very fun and engaging to explore vocabulary!
This standard is printed on every page in this kid and parent friendly language:
I can learn new words (general, academic, and domain specific). Knowing these words helps me with my reading, writing, speaking, and listening. This will help me get ready for college or my career.
You can use these pages as a whole group or independently as a center or seat work! The best part about using this as a center is that there are no little pieces to lose! The page IS the center!
