A New Baby
- Number Words and Ordinal Numbers: Write the numbers one through nine on the board in a column (1, 2, 3...). Write the number words in another column (one, two, three...). Write the ordinal number words in another column (first, second, third...). Practice each list. Have students come to the front of the room and line up in a straight line facing the teacher. Count how many students are in the line. Ask "Who is number 1 in the line?" "Who is number 4 in the line?". Then review ordinal numbers and practice with questions such as "Who is second in the line?" and "Who is first in the line?"
- Family: Read the book Family. Have students write pattern sentences about themselves and their classmates using number words and family words.
