  1. Write the numbers 1 through 10 on a sheet of paper, top to bottom. These numbers are called cardinal numbers: they show the amount of something. An ordinal number shows the order of things — first, second, third, fourth, and so on. Next to each cardinal number, write its ordinal word.

  2. If Waltur had four floors to paint, and each floor had four corners, how many corners would Waltur have to paint?

  3. Draw a rectangle (not a square) that shows Waltur’s floor. Suppose that Waltur’s floor was 8 feet wide by 10 feet long. Label the two short sides of the rectangle 8 feet, and the two long sides 10 feet. If you walked around the outside of Waltur’s floor, how many feet would you walk?

  4. If the farmer and his helper, the dog and the dog’s 6 puppies, and the angry bull all chased Waltur, how many were chasing him?
