In this video, puppets Dodly and Flynn from ABC Education explore counting with numbers from first through to sixth. Learning about the order of numbers helps children understand the basics of how numbers work.
You can give additional support to your child after this video by getting them to apply it to their own lives in the following activities:
Ask your child what was the first thing they did this morning? What was the second thing they did? What was third? And so on and so forth.
Get your child and their friends to line up in order from smallest to tallest. Who is first? Who is second? Who is third? Count the rest of the line in order (fourth, fifth, sixth etc.) Who is last?
Draw or make a list of six things they need to do to get ready for school, in order from first to sixth.
