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 T words. Part Two consists of alphabetizing U words.

Examples: Treat, Train, Trust, Trick = Since these words begin with T, students need to look at the other letters in the words. The answer to the examples is Train, Treat, Trick, and Trust.

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.
