Overview of the week: This week we are going to look at how to put words in alphabetical order and then move on to work on comprehension skills.

 

Activity 1

Alphabetical Order

We often sort letters and words in alphabetical order. This means to order them as they appear in the alphabet. When sorting words into alphabetical order, we look at the first letter of the word.
