How Homeschoolers Practice Alphabetizing

Why give your kids worksheets on alphabetizing when they can practice the “real world” way?

[8]

Remember when I showed you our new bookshelves [8]? I had organized them with biographies all on one row in alphabetical order, fiction on another row, history on another, etc. Well, as I suspected would happen, they didn’t stay looking this way for long.

It looked more like this last week. That’s when I reminded everyone how I wanted the books organized and reminded them of the rules of alphabetizing.

They set right to work and got it put back in shape in no time. (Many hands make light work, after all.) I even heard them discussing with each other the proper way to alphabetize while they were completing this task.

No boring worksheets on alphabetizing for us! We’ll use practical application instead.
