In Balanced Literacy we practiced putting words into ABC order. We began by playing a game where the whole class had to put themselves into ABC order by their first names. After a couple of tries we could get in ABC order in half a minute! We then worked in small groups to put Halloween words in ABC order. The 2Js also worked in groups to see how many words we could make from the word “Halloween”, as well as reading and following directions to draw a Halloween picture.
