ABC Order

ABC Order is ALWAYS a difficult skill to teach little ones.  I have been doing it a little differently this year and I have found that they kiddos have caught on much faster.  I found this AWESOME little song on you tube. It is from SpellingCity.com. It is perfect for describing why it is important to put things in ABC Order.  First, we listen to, sing, and participate with the song using whiteboards and expo markers.  Then we take our words of the week and work with our partners to put the words in ABC Order. (The kiddos sit at tables so to make this lesson a little competitive and game like, I put dividers down the middle of the tables.) Once the partners have their words in order they remove the dividers to see if their word order matches the other set of partners.  After checking our word order, coaching and praising our partners, we write our words down.  Here are a few pictures of our fun:

This group decided they liked their privacy that the divider gave them so they put them back up to write their words! LOL!!

Have you found any other helpful, engaging, or fun ways to practice ABC order? Would love to hear about it!
