Bell Work

Alphabet Circle

You will need a set of alphabet cards for this activity. Hand cards out randomly to students as they enter the classroom, or have them pick from a pile. Instruct them to sit in a circle in order from A to Z. Depending on your class size, you may need to leave out a few letters. Or have more than one of some letters.
