Ordinal Numbers

What are ordinal numbers?

It’s learning time. All the elves have come to queen fairy to know about ordinal numbers.

Ordinal Numbers

Fairy asks all the elves to stand in the order from shortest to tallest.

 ‘Adrian (A) you come first, then comes Brad (B) second, Charlie (C) comes third, Mike comes fourth and Patrick comes fifth’ says the fairy.

Ordinal Numbers

First, second, third, fourth and fifth are ordinal numbers.

Now, fairy asks them their ordinal numbers.


I. Tick the position of Mike, Charlie, Patrick, Brad and Adrian in the ordinal number. One has been done for you.

(i)

Mike

fourth 

second

(ii)

Charlie

second

third

(iii)

Patrick

first

fifth

(iv)

Brad

fifth

second

(v)

Adrian

first

third


II. Fill in the missing letters:

(i) f_i_t

(ii) s_c_n_

(iii) t_ i_d

(iv) f_u_t_

(v) f_f_h


Ordinal numbers indicate the position of the objects or the order of the objects. When some objects are placed in an order then to tell their position we use ordinal numbers. Ordinal numbers are similar to the Cardinal numbers.

For example, if ten students gave an exam, we would say that the student that scored the highest mark was in first place, the next student was in second place, and so on.

The First Ten Ordinal Numbers are:

First

Second

Third

Fourth

Fifth

Sixth

Seventh

Eighth

Ninth

Tenth

These children are waiting in a line to go for their class assembly.

Call out their positions in the line.

Ordinal Numbers

In kindergarten math lesson kids will learn the first ten ordinal numbers and then we can practice the exercise on ordinal numbers.

Math Only Math is based on the premise that children do not make a distinction between play and work and learn best when learning becomes play and play becomes learning.



However, suggestions for further improvement, from all quarters would be greatly appreciated.
