Ordinal Numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd) are important because they help us put things in order and tell the position of an object. They are some of the most common words used when giving directions.  To work on this skill, I quickly created different staircases and wrote the ordinal number under each stair.

My kids were able to independently complete this first because they just looked at the number (and not the letters after it) and counted out the “number” steps to draw the pumpkin on. However, when they were done, I had them tell me where they put each pumpkin. I was looking for, “I put the pumpkin on the second step” not “I put the pumpkin on 2 step. And the best part is, this is SO SO EASY to set up that kids can even make it themselves!
