Counting is one of the most important skills kids learn in early grades.
But there’s more to counting than just reciting numerals from 1 to 10.
Students also need to learn how to use ordinal numbers to assign sequential order to objects in a line.
And that’s why I’m excited to share this pumpkin themed kindergarten ordinal numbers lesson!
This resource includes both printable practice for students, as well as a teaching lesson you can use to introduce this skills to your class!

Pumpkin Places! Kindergarten Ordinal Number Lesson
Young children usually have a pretty good idea of what “first” means already.
Just try to give someone else something ahead of them. They’ll shout “I was first!” It’s the other numbers that might need a little practice, right?
This kindergarten ordinal number lesson can help!
This is a complete math lesson on how to count with ordinal numbers for early learners.
It begins with a two-page lesson that explains what ordinal numbers are and how they are used in counting.
Once you read the lesson with the class, you can hand out the first set of ordinal number worksheets.
These help students learn to find the object in the correct ordinal place.
The worksheets follow the same format as the lesson, so students won’t get confused trying to understand the directions.
Since this resource is for early learners, the focus is on learning ordinal numbers from first through fifth only.
The second set of worksheets lets students identify the ordinal number places in which each pumpkin stands.
Then they can write the correct ordinal number word or write the correct ordinal number place for each pumpkin.
Need to save on ink? Use the line art version, which is also included.
Plus, you can have the class color the worksheets afterward, which is always fun.
This resource also adapts well for use at math centers!
Add it to a clear sheet protector and let students use dry erase markers to complete it.
You might also try cutting the worksheet into strips and placing the strips on a ring. They make a wonderful addition to morning tubs!
A full answer key is also included!
