These numbers are intended to be used to order visual directions for your students. For example, I use these on my whiteboard, if I want my students to cut I put that next to the number one, then if I want them to paste I would put that next to the number 2, and so on.
The Calm Classroom has made these for you to use however you wish in your classroom. The kids love how colourful they are and are so easy to use. I glued magnets on the back of mine for easier use.
