Ordinal Number Worksheets

What are Ordinal Numbers? Most of us do not realize that we use numbers in many different ways. Say, we use numbers to count the numbers of shirts you have packed for the trip, the number of books you bought this year, or the number of goals made in a football match. If you packed six shirts, bought five books, or scored two goals, these are the count of the shirts, books, and the goals. However, there are situations when you aren’t required to keep a count of something; you just want a number to tell you about the place or position. Numbers that indicate a position of something in a group or place in order are known as the ordinal numbers. Here the first ten ordinal numbers that we all typically use: First or 1st , Second or 2nd , Third or 3rd , Fourth or 4th, Fifth or 5th , Sixth or 6th , Seventh or 7th , Eight or 8th , Ninth or 9th , Tenth or 10th.
