Through many years of teaching, I have found that elapsed time is one of the most difficult skills to teach students. Whereas some see this skill as being more developmental (you get it when you get it), the standards do not seem to agree. To make matters worse, it never fails that there are elapsed time problems on the state standardized tests. I have developed a bundle of resources to help with these problems.
This bundle contains a wide variety of tools to help with teaching elapsed time. From an extremely effective teaching method using t-charts (Elapsed Time: Teaching Elapsed Time Using T-Charts
), to additional problems and activities (Elapsed Time: Multi-Level Elapsed Time Activities
), to a larger scale project (Elapsed Time: My TV Guide Project
), this bundle is designed to get results from all levels of learners!
In this bundle, you will get:
1. An explanation of the elapsed time t-chart strategy
2. 5 step-by-step elapsed time t-chart examples. **This is a great resource for parents!
3. 2 different elapsed time t-charts (blank)
4. 6 pages of leveled elapsed time t-chart problems with answer keys (beginner, intermediate, advanced-2 pages each)
5. 3 pages of leveled elapsed time word problems with answer keys (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
6. 3 leveled elapsed time homework/activity logs (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
7. "My TV Guide Project"
Explanation of Levels:
Beginner: minutes only
Intermediate: hours and minutes to the 5-minute mark
Advanced: hours and minutes to the 1-minute mark
