We have continued to learn about poems and today we listened to the poem 5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate on the SMART board. We listened to the song and learned ordinal numbers by following along with the song / poem.
Then to practice what we’ve learned about ordinal numbers, we played an ordinal numbers matching game. Students stood up in front of the room while other students sat down and called out two different ordinal numbers, “I’ll pick the 2nd student and the 5th student”. If they made a match with the Halloween picture they scored a point.
We read the story Franklin’s Halloween and discussed Ordinal Numbers. We practiced counting using ordinal numbers and then played a matching game using ordinal numbers. Students stood in line holding Halloween pictures, and the other students play the game by asking a person to turn their card over using their ordinal position. If the students get a match they get a point and the person in line keeps their cards turned over.
