To wrap up their work, students rotated through several ABC stations. In table groups, students arranged pictures of book characters in alphabetical order, stacked cups with words on them in alphabetical order, placed pictures of book spines in shelf order, and arranged words from a magnetic poetry kit into alphabetical order. Other centers included a coloring station, a Lego stack station, and another card station.
