Hi, I'm Rachel, and today we're going to be going over how to teach ordinal numbers in the first grade. So ordinal numbers as I'm sure you know are numbers like first, second, third, fourth and so on. It's good to teach them tenth, maybe even eleventh. What I like to do is have it be very hands on. So I would like to give them something like balls of different colors or eggs painted different colors, something like that or marbles and you know, so they have like a red one, a blue one, a green one and you can say okay, take the green ball and put it in first, right, so that they will learn what first is. Take the red ball and put it second. Take the blue ball and put it third and even have them write, third, second, first on the balls or the eggs or whatever you know even if it's a piece of paper, whatever, and that also helps them learn their colors too right and become more familiar with the colors. Something else you can do is have them get on their feet and they can line up, you know, by their birthdays or by shortest to tallest and then have them say their order, first, second, third, fourth so that they get more familiar with these ordinal numbers but also they are up on their feet, they are active and they are using it in their actual experience in their life so it will become more installed in their memory and in their bran. I'm Rachel and thank you for learning with me today.
