First Grade Math: Extending the Counting Sequence

Brought to you by Nodma, this printable from SAP Learning Math Grade 1 will help students learn about extending the counting sequence.

Using the illustrations on the worksheet as a guide, students will be asked to answer questions using position words and ordinal words.

Teaching Tip: Model the activity and use of positional words by asking the class who among them came in first in the morning and who came in last, followed by a brief definition of orders and positions. After completing the worksheet, ask the students to talk about a race or contest they have participated or watched and ask about who came in first, second and third to familiarize them further with numerals, ordinal numbers and positions.

This resource aligns to CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.NBT.A.1, the 1st Grade Common Core Standard for extending the counting sequence and reading and writing about numerals.
