Alphabetical Order

Today we worked with 16 words that start with P.

I dictated the words and made sure that
at least half of them were "new words".
(we first folded the paper so as to mark 16 squares)

After writing the wor
ds, he cut out the squares and starting organizing.
He had to go as far as the fourth letter with some words.
He put them in groups
by second letter,
arranged each group individually
and then put all the groups together.

Besides learning how to order words alphabetically, he learned new words and practiced handwriting, cutting, problem-solving, organizing, and task completion.


  1. What a great hands-on activity for cognitive learning! I gotta get me some more of that :-)

  2. Yay! Thanks Ingi. I've been feeling really insecure the last week. Feels nice to get a pat on the back.
