About these printables
These printables give your child practice at ordering numbers.
This download contains 2 versions of the same activity – one for both 2 and 3 digit numbers.
Both of these cut and paste activities have two pages. The first has number cards to cut out and the second is for ordering and sticking down the numbers.
The activity in itself is pretty simple – simply order the numbers on the cards and place the largest number at the top all the way down to the smallest at the bottom.
However, the numbers on the cards are presented in a number of different ways. For example, they might be in numerals (e.g. 21), in expanded form (e.g. 20 + 1), in words (e.g. 2 tens and 1 one) or they may also be shown in picture form as base ten blocks (e.g 2 sticks of ten cubes and 1 single cube).
This means that in order to put the cards in order of number size, your child will first have to work out what each number on the card is.
How to complete this activity
The good news is that all you need to get started with this activity is your own printed copy of the activity (which you can get a the end of this post), a pair of scissors and a glue stick.
To start with, cut out the 7 number cards.
Arrange all the number cards in order, from highest number down to the lowest.
Glue them down in the right order on the worksheet.
It is always worth reminding your child to double check the numbers are in the right order before they stick them down!
As you can see, the activity shown above is for 2 digit numbers. This same activity is included for 3 digit numbers and is great for helping children develop their understanding of hundreds, tens and ones.

Secondly, you could cut out and laminate both the cards and the worksheet and use them as a math center.
The choice is yours!
