One thing that I’ve found to remain pretty much constant with kids, no matter what age they are, is that they all seem to love cut and paste activities. Having an activity the requires pulling out the scissors and the glue always seems like such an exciting thing and from what I’ve seen, that excitement doesn’t die out just because they’ve gotten a little bit older.
With that in mind, and because Christmas activities are some of my favorites, I created a set of seasonal cut and paste printables that allow 1st and 2nd graders to work on alphabetical order while getting everyone in the holiday spirit at the same time!
This printable set comes with four separate pages and includes almost 30 holiday-themed words that can be used to practice placing items into proper ABC order. Even better, you can easily reuse them later on for an extra special holiday vocabulary lesson or even as a list of spelling words!
Once you’ve printed the pages out, just have your child cut the words in the left-hand column out and then paste them into the right-hand column in alphabetical order. Simple as that!
Not feeling the cut and paste aspect? That’s okay too!
Just laminate the pages, or stick them in these handy dry erase pockets, hand over a dry erase marker and let them write the words in the correct order on the right side. Not only will you work on alphabetical order, you’ll be getting in a little handwriting practice as well!
