Sorting out words by alphabetical order is a skill that some pupils may find difficult. To assist in learning this skill, this resource contains 26 flashcards, each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. Most of the words are longer words, four or more letters in length. The first letter in each word is highlighted in a different colour to assist in the sorting.
To start with pupils could be given 6-8 consecutive flashcards and asked to sort them by alphabetical order. The number of flashcards to sort could be gradually increased until pupils have to sort all 26 flashcards. Pupils could then be given groups of random flashcards and asked to sort them.
