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 V words. Part Two consists of alphabetizing W words.

Examples: Very, Victory, Veil, Vein = Since these words begin with V, students need to look at the other letters in the words. The answer to the examples is Veil, Vein, Very, and Victory.
