Sweetheart ABC Order

Here's an activity you could use at a center that we promise your kiddos will LOVE!!! 

It's called Sweetheart ABC Order. 

Begin by making two sets of {sweetheart} cards.  These could be simple hearts you make out of construction paper or scrapbook paper (like we did this year) or fancy cards you make on the computer (like we've done in the past).  You will need one set for the boys and one set for the girls. 

Write each one of your little 1st grade sweetheart's first name on a card.  You could even attach their picture if you like.  We love to use the sticky pictures we get as teachers when school pictures are taken.  Hopefully you are lucky enough to get a set of these, too!!! 
For this activity students will put each set of {sweetheart} name cards in ABC Order.  You will be amazed at how much fun they think this is . . . plus they are working on an important 1st grade skill.

Click on the heart to download a copy of the record sheet we are using this year.  Every year we have to change it up a little bit because we never seem to have the same number of boys and girls.
