# pre-Entry N1/M6.4 Recognise numerals 1 to 3, & with some inconsistencies 1 to 5

Pre-Entry Numeracy > Whole numbers > N1/M6.4

Recognise numerals (a) 1 to 3 (b) with some inconsistencies, to 5.

Example: involve learners in games involving numerals up to 5 - this could then progress to dominoes or dice games involving numbers up to 6.

## Cardinal and ordinal number jigsaw

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).
