I remember my first grade classroom. The ABC’s hung at the front of the classroom, above the blackboard. That was the year we learned to put those letters together. We learned their order and how each letter sounded.
That was 46 years ago…you would think by now I wouldn’t have to run through the alphabet in my head every time I am looking up a word in the dictionary (yes sometimes I still use an old school dictionary) or someone’s name in my phone.
