What are Ordinal Numbers? When do we use them?
- On this unit you will learn that objects placed in order used ordinal numbers to tell their position. Ordinal numbers are similar to the numbers that you learned before (they are called Cardinal numbers). If ten runners ran a race, we would say that the person that ran the fastest was in first place, the next student was in second place, and so on.
- Ordinal numbers are alternatively written in English with numerals and letter suffixes: 1st, 2nd or 2d, 3rd or 3d, 4th, 11th, 21st, 477th, etc.
- On this activity you will be able to learn and practice about ordinal numbers. You will be able to identify real life situations where ordinal numbers are used, you will be able to understand and use appropriately ordinal numbers. Some of the activities for you to do include to read the story of the 10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle, you will have to work on an activity related to the information on the book.
- Something that you will enjoy during this unit is to work with a partner that you will choose to work with. When the two of you are ready, you will work a fun game called Squiggle’s Apples on the computer. Pay attention to all the activities involved on these fun games because you will be graded.
