Alphabetizing Words Beginning with A and B
This lesson consists of words beginning with A and B. It has two parts. Students will write the words in alphabetical order.
This is for fourth and fifth grade students.
First, you will copy the worksheet so that each student will have a copy.
Then, you will explain to the students how to put words in alphabetical order. The worksheet is in two parts. Part One consists of alphabetizing A words. Part Two consists of alphabetizing B words.
Examples: Apricots, Advantage, Addition = Addition, Advantage, Apricots.
If the words begin with the same letters, then you need to look at the next letters and continue until the letters are different. Addition and Adventure both have "ad." However, the third letters are d and v. D comes before v, so you would place addition before adventure. Then Apricots would come last.
After that, you will pass out the worksheets so the students can work on them independently.
When they have completed the worksheet, you will collect them.
