Race-way Ordinal Numbers FREEBIE

Pin It

We started talking about ordinal numbers around Halloween as we were singing and acting out the all-time favorite poem "Five Little Pumpkins."  To extend the children's learning in this area we thought of other times when we would use ordinal numbers - they mentioned when lining up to go to library, gym, etc. and also in a race!  I brought in my son's Wheelies Rampway and that's exactly what we did - had a race! 

The kids took turns racing their cars down the ramp way.  We made note of which car came in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.  It was a really fun way to teach ordinal numbers!  We filled out our response sheet writing out our ordinal numbers.  You can do this activity with any type of ramp (the kids could even make it themselves).  If you'd like a FREE copy of the recording sheet, race on over and click the image below!

There are 2 different recording sheets depending on if you're working on numbers 1st to 5th, or 1st to 10th.

Thanksgiving FREEBIE!

Pin It
This is a super quick post to share a FREEBIE with you!  We celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada a few weeks ago.  I just love, family and friends...what a great way to spend the day and reflect on all our blessings!  We made our very own hand-print turkey with all the fall colors.  This was a super-easy and quick activity that the kids enjoyed.  It even got them talking about 'cornucopias' which they were somehow fascinated with...the look of them and the actual sound of the word!  

I know that the American Thanksgiving is quickly approaching for friends and families just south of us.  If you'd like your own copy of the hand-print poem printable, just click the image below.  

Sorry I'm late with this post for all the Canadian followers and bloggers, but at least you can store it away for next year!

Have a great week everyone!
