Memorize the order of letters in the alphabet

This worksheet is the foundation of becoming intimately familiar with letters. This exercise can be performed by any child who knows the entire alphabet and its order by heart. Begin with letter order problems that only ask for letters that follow, first working on accuracy and then speed. Move on to letters that come between others, and finally letters that come before. By the time the student can do the entire worksheet with an average of two seconds per problem, their brains will become hard-wired to recognize letter order. This makes them significantly better at sorting and dictionary skills introduced later.
