ALPHABETICAL  ORDER

STAGE TWO: How do I find words using alphabetical order?

Once you have memorized the alphabet in chunks, it will be easier to find words in the full alphabet.  The next step is to figure out how to find a word within one letter of the alphabet.

A B C D E F.G H I J K L M.N O P Q R S.T U V W X Y Z

PIE

Treat each letter in a word as a separate unit.

Take one letter at a time, beginning with the first letter in the word.

        Each time you find a letter, go back through the alphabet in order again until you find the next letter in your word.
