Teach/Model: Use Alphabetical Order Words in a dictionary or encyclopedia are in alphabetical order. Why does this make words easier to find? When I put words in alphabetical order, I look at the first letter in each word. Then I think about the letters in the alphabet. Which letter comes first, r or f? I know that f comes before r in the alphabet. Now I know that fox comes before rabbit in alphabetical order.
