English Homework:
Alphabetical Toys

© 1998 Gareth Pitchford

Words are put into alphabetical order. It's a lot easier to look up something in a dictionary, index or encyclopaedia if you know how alphabetical order works. This homework will help you practice putting things in alphabetical order.

You'll need to get out about ten or fifteen of your favourite toys.

Write down the name of each toy on a piece of paper. Now put the names of the toys in alphabetical order. You might find it easier if you move your toys around to sort them!

Make a list of your toys in alphabetical order and bring it into school.

If you don't want to do this homework on toys then you could always do it on favourite TV programmes or pop groups instead.
