CCSS.Math.Content.1.MD.B.3 Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.C.7 Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.
This telling time activity is meant to get your students moving. It is especially appealing to your kinesthetic learners and is tiered to meet the various readiness levels of all your students. Print, cut, and laminate the clock cards. Mount them with painter’s tape around your classroom. They are tiered and color-coded based on the readiness of your student. Each tier contains 12 cards to keep your students busy. Students use the corresponding colored recording sheets to identify the time on the sea creature clock with the corresponding colored border. Orange borders represent time to the hour and half hour, purple borders represent time to the hour, one half hour and quarter hour, and blue borders are for time to a five minute mark. Of course, if you prefer not to mount these around your room, you could simply place them in a seasonal bucket and have students draw a card and record what they find. I also like to extend this activity by having the students make the time on an individual ‘Judy’ clock when they have recorded all their answers.
For additional practice, you will also find some printable pages at the end of this package that can be used for morning work or homework.
