How did you teach your child alphabetical order? My DD is 6 and currently working in a 2nd grade reading book and they have hit on a few things she doesn't know very well. She knows the alphabet but was totally lost when we got to a page that had a few problems of arranging short words in to alphabetical order. She totally zoned out and had no idea what it meant.I plan to use some alphabet cards and let her sort those in order for a while before doing words but I'd love to hear what others have done? especially fun ways to keep it interesting.
