# Lesson Plan Template

### Materials and Preparation

• TeachTastic Worksheet Pack: Includes visual aids and activities focused on ordinal numbers and sequence understanding.
• Picture Cards: A set of cards depicting a cat, dog, bird, and turtle in various sequences.

### Learning Objectives

Students will be able to identify and use ordinal numbers from first to fifth to describe the position of objects in a sequence.

### Introduction

Start the lesson by explaining what ordinal numbers are and how they are used to describe the position of something in a line or sequence. Use simple examples like lining up for recess or ranking in a race.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Learn with an example:

• Display a sequence of picture cards rotating from cat to dog to bird to turtle.
• Question: The first picture is a cat. Which picture is second?
• Solution: The first picture is a cat. The second picture is a dog. Count from the first picture to find the second picture, then the third. The second picture is a dog, and the third picture is a bird.

### Guided Practice

Students will be given the "Ordinal Positions in Line" worksheet. This activity will involve a series of pictures where students must identify and label the position of each item using ordinal numbers (first, second, third, etc.).

### Independent Practice

Students will receive the "Ordinal Number Adventure" worksheet, where they will draw or place stickers in a sequence and then describe the order using ordinal numbers, applying their understanding in a creative way.

## Support

• Use a classroom activity where students line up and then identify their position in line using ordinal numbers.
• For students struggling with the concept, additional one-on-one or small group practice with tangible objects may help solidify understanding.

## Extension

• Introduce higher ordinal numbers beyond fifth for advanced students.
• Create a story or game that involves finding items or characters in a specific order based on ordinal numbers.

### Assessment

Evaluate students' grasp of the lesson objectives through their performance on the worksheets, active participation in class discussions and activities, and the accuracy of their answers in the exit ticket/formative assessment. Look for their ability to correctly identify and use ordinal numbers from first to fifth in various contexts, as demonstrated in their independent work and interactive exercises.

### Review and closing

Conclude the lesson by recapping the importance of ordinal numbers in everyday life and reviewing how they help us describe the position of items in a sequence. Highlight student successes and interesting observations from the activities.

### Misconceptions

• Students may confuse ordinal numbers with cardinal numbers, thinking they refer to quantity rather than position.
• Some students might find it difficult to understand that the ordinal sequence remains the same regardless of the direction of counting (left to right or right to left).
