Ordinal number fun
Maths today. Great fun! This sheet is from a great resource by Tina Rubie. We started off with some 'walking races' in the classroom and talked about who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Then we made lines of 10 people and I gave instructions like "the 4th person in line needs to bob down, and the 7th person in line needs to spin around". We talked about what 'ordinal numbers' are, then discussed how to read the shorthand version of ordinal numbers to colour in the right pictures. This student matched the number with the picture so they could colour in the other pictures when finished.
