Today’s homework is a consolidation of our hands on demonstration of position of numbers. After the children were given a yellow and orange blank flashcard each and placed in a line alternating the orange colour with the yellow one, we proceeded by each child holding the same card colour saying a number and skipping the number by one. In this way the children holding the yellow cards were all giving the odd numbers while the children holding the orange cards were all saying the even numbers. We then went on to explaining the procedure of first, second, third fourth and so on. Also giving the short form of how to write these as well as how to keep writing the short form of the bigger numbers from 21 on wards. ie:
First → 1st
Second → 2nd
Third → 3rd
Therefore the first three numbers of every new tens has to have the endings of st, nd, rd. Example 21st, 22nd, 23rd.
Homework set on the above is 3A Page 5 Blue numbers 1 and 2. These are to be worked on copybook.
Please note that the students have to learn that every time work is given the date has to be written at the right hand side of the page while the book, page and numbers have to be written on the left hand side of the page.
Another important factor to note is that what is written on the book in the exercise has to be copied on the copybook together with the answer. The children have to learn that answers need to have an origin. Example: pear → 1st
Thank you and have a nice evening
