Trying to teach alphabetical order to your kids?  You’ve probably discovered that it’s one thing for a child to know their ABCs, and quite another to alphabetize a list of words. But conquering alphabetical order is important later in life when trying to find a book in the library, or making use of a phone book, so don’t give up!

Have you tried having your kids use a dictionary to reinforce this skill?  You have to know alphabetical order to use a dictionary, right?  How about alphabet soup?  Make it yourself for a healthy meal, and let your assistants put the ingredients in ABC order as you cook.  That would make a silly, but educational, lunchtime diversion!

Here’s a fun worksheet to add to your toolkit of ABC order activities, and it teaches about fruits and vegetables too!

Thank you so much for sharing this creative activity, Jennifer. What a fun way to learn alphabetical order. Mom can even call out a letter and the kids can find the letter that comes before and after and then eat them. Yummy! I will bet most kids enjoy spelling them name with the letters too.
