I haven’t posted much this year.  Time has gotten away from me! I thought I’d share a quick idea for practicing ordinal numbers.  We had 10 minutes left in class on a Friday afternoon before a spirit assembly, so we had a paper airplane contest and wrote about the winners in order to practice the ordinal numbers we had just learned and review colors.   Luckily, I had a lot of scrap paper in different colors in my classroom.  I gave students exactly 2 minutes to fold their plane and then we all took aim at a circle I made with some string on the floor.  I then asked them to write 10 sentences about the winners and losers and their place in the contest.  I could have awarded prizes to the winners, but we didn’t have time.
