Do you do anything extra to teach your child alphabetizing?
Friday, April 20, 2012
One thing as an adult I hate to do is to file. You know at work file folders, bills, receipts, the works. I have never liked to file anything. You might ask why? It is a little embarrassing, but when I was growing up I never learned my alphabet past the song. Does that make sense. Yes over the years I did have to do activities that alphabetized words and list but I really just skated by barely on that subject. I still have to go through some of the alphabet to remember where things go in order. Example where is h I have to go through abcdefgH to know it comes after g. I do this in my head all the time. Anything that comes after M I can usually just start at mnop.... to get to where I need to go. But still to this day can't just put something where it needs to be. I know embarrassing. I am blushing as I type this. I share this cause I want my OWN kids to NOT have to go through this. We really push abc games and alphabetizing games.
