A Spanish teacher, Patty, asked for ideas for teaching ordinal numbers.
I make a class set of ordinal numbers inside page protectors and attached with ribbon – I want them to last until I retire!
Each student hangs it on his or her desk. The desks are in a circle so that we can see one another’s number.
We do a chant – slap the desk twice and as you snap the first time you say your number and as you snap the second time you say the number of someone else.
Once the person you have called upon passes successfully to the next person, then you can lift up your sheet and not be called on.
