Playing this number order game is fairly straight forward. Choose the number cards you would like your students to work on, choose these carefully not to overload your students with a large number of cards. Students will begin by laying out the Gingerbread number cards starting with 0 and continuing on until the last number card in their set. Check on the students to be sure they ordered their numbers correctly. After they have finished laying out all the number cards, they can begin filling in the missing numbers on their recording sheets while looking over to the laid out Gingerbread number cards.

Another way you could use these cards is to play a scavenger hunt game and tape all the number cards around the room. Then, have the kids looking for the numbers around the room, coloring and filling out the missing numbers on their sheets as they go along. You can also print two sets of these number cards and have the kids play a memory or matching game with the cards. This will help them further develop their number identification skills.
