A Simple and straightforward 16 piece jigsaw that makes a great group activity. Cardinal and ordinal numbers are matched with number words to form a triangle. This puzzle constructs sequentially, i.e. the word ‘one’ is at the triangle’s apex, matching with 1, then two, underneath it and so on up to 10 in cardinals and 8th in ordinals (this makes it a lot easier for preEntry learners to see how the triangle is constructed).

A set of two simple, yet useful and effective PowerPoints. The first shows the alphabet in order, the other in random order and where each letter only flashes briefly. The resource can be used for general alphabet practice, but the random order is useful for difficult letters like vowels a, e, i, and consonants g and j.
