Ordinal Numbers Lesson

Jireh was trying to sound out some words and came upon the word “sixth,” which she declared didn’t “make any sense!” To explain it, I called upon a frequent conversation the girls have regarding their birth order. “Miriam is first, you’re second, then Soren is third, Christina is fourth, this baby is the fifth, and then another baby after that would be the sixth.”
Continuing on with the numbers, I added, “Then, we have sevenTH, eighTH, ninTH and tenTH.”
Jireh’s eyes got very big. I smiled encouragingly… she said, “Wow! You’re going to have a lot of babies!”
