Maths: Ordering numbers up to 20

You will need number cards up to 20. You can make them or print them from the link below.

** Today you will learn to put numbers to 20 in order. **

  • When you’ve put number cards 1-20 in order, ask an adult to take some numbers away (don’t look!) How quickly can you work out which number cards are missing? Look at the number before and after the gap!
  • Now muddle up your cards and pick 5 cards. Can you put them in order from the smallest to the largest?
  • Muddle up your number cards, now use a timer to see how quickly you can put the numbers in order from 1-20.

Can you be a superstar learner and use the star words today?

*more, less, greater, fewer, order*
