Ordinal Numbers

We have been working with ordinal numbers for a couple of days. Ordinal numbers are something that we use quite often and it has been introduced naturally in our daily lives. 

With three children, it is quickly realized what first, second, and third mean in our world. Who gets to have the "first" chocolate milk served to them tonight at dinner, who gets to go "first" or "second" spraying the hose on their siblings after I disconnect it from the sprinkler - the daily practical application of ordinal numbers in our life is endless.

Our problem, was that we rarely get past "third." In order to expand our basic understanding of ordinal numbers, I created an Ordinal Number work set where ten cute little animals are waiting in line for ice cream. Arrows with the ordinal number words are to be placed under the correct position of the animals waiting in line.


My little bit had a lot of fun with this activity as she is an avid animal lover. It was also an opportunity to read the ordinal word numbers.
