I created this product because I was having difficulty finding hands on activities to teach/reinforce ordinal numbers. (1st-20th) This is a very simple activity, but does require the student to think about not only the position, but being able to identify it in word or number form when it’s not in order. Each student will need 20 pattern blocks, or any other object really, but I used pattern blocks so that’s what the directions say. After they have their blocks, they will line them up on their desk and then draw/color the line they created in the space provided. Afterwards they will use the line they made and draw the blocks in the corresponding boxes based on the order they arranged them in. This will challenge them to think about ordinal numbers overall, where they are, what they look like written out, etc. I found this activity to be much more effective then simply having them number something or fill in numbers because it required them to think and pay more attention to the task at hand! This could easily be used as an assessment piece and since they draw the line they created on the paper, you have a reference for grading! (No two will be the same!)
Hope this helps your kiddos too!
