Ordinal Numbers with Trains

We worked on sequencing events and using ordinal numbers in math this week. We read the book My Train by Michael Rex. Then I passed out 5 different colored trains to the students and told stories about the trains using ordinal and positional words. Their friends on the carpet helped them get in the right order. Then a student partner and I modeled how to tell each other stories to put in order using ordinal and positional language. Then I passed out a set of train cards to students in pairs or threes and they took turns telling each other stories using ordinal and positional language.
