Spelling in Spanish

The girls are learning to recognize and spell the written form of Spanish numbers one through ten. (Or should I say uno through diez?) Today we wrote the English and Spanish versions of each number on their dry erase cards and had the girls take turns matching them and putting them in numerical order.

Speaking of order, I find it strange that both the second grade and third grade workbooks have them start out learning alphabetical order. Do the writers of the third grade book assume they never learned it at the beginning of second grade or do they assume that they forgot it all over summer vacation? I'm glad we homeschool year round so that the girls continue to use the skills and information they've learned instead of turning off their brains for a few months during the summer every year.
