ABCdarian!  What a great word!

Here is a fun thing to try and to challenge your friends or classmates.

Definition of ABCdarian is

a :  relating to the alphabet

b : alphabetically arranged

There are several ways of writing something in an ABCdarian manner.

One example is to write a 26 line poem with the first line starting with (A), the second (B) and so on until you have used all 26 letters . Like this  short example:

All the class stood in the field

Beautiful flowers and trees around

Capturing butterflies, birds and bees

Diving among wind and fluttering leaves

Can you finish this poem or make one up of your own?

Another example is making a short 26 word story using all the letters in order. Here is one I wrote.

Ancient beetles could dance effectively,

finding great hype in juggling kinked loops

made now of plastic,

quickly replacing some types

usually very waxy

((x)) years zippered

 

((X))  is the roman numeral for 10 million.

Use your dictionary for interesting words. Learning new words is fun.
