## How do you teach children to order numbers in Year 1?

To help your child learn to order numbers in Year 1, start with counting exercises. First, make sure they can count forwards and backwards confidently. Then use number cards and charts to help them recognise numbers. You can introduce number lines so they can see the sequence of numbers visually.

Ask your child to arrange number cards in the correct order and play sorting games with objects like blocks or toys labeled with numbers. You can also try creating interactive charts where they can stick numbers in the right order.

Incorporate ordering numbers into daily routines and real-life situations. For example, line up shoes from smallest to largest.

Try creating simple stories or scenarios involving ordering numbers, like helping animals line up. Songs and rhymes that include counting and ordering numbers help to reinforce the concept.

Provide worksheets with exercises on ordering numbers, and encourage group activities where children work together to order numbers.

Make it fun by organising number hunts, hiding number cards around the house. Or use sequencing puzzles that require putting pieces in numerical order to complete a picture. These activities will make learning fun and engaging for your child.

This fun, playful activity was created by a primary school teacher to help your child understand the order of numbers up to 100. There's a number thief on the loose and your child will need to find the missing numbers.
