Put some smiles into elapsed time practice! This set of task cards uses short easy-to-read word problems with engaging pictures to make practice fun. Large, easy to read clocks on each task card helps students to figure out each answer.
Answer sheets come in 10, 16 and 32 answer versions to allow teachers the ability to choose how many task cards to use for an activity. An answer key is provided that can be given to students for self checking at centers, or used by the teacher for assessment.
If you wish to choose your own set of task cards, use the dot stickers found at food stores and used at garage sales. The 1/4 inch circle should cover the existing number easily. This allows teachers to number the cards as she/he chooses. To make an answer key, just write the answers on one of the answer sheets.
This resource addresses common core 3.MD.A.1 as well as 4.MD.A.2
Comments about this resource include:
I like these task cards because they offer a lot of elapsed time practice that is within the hour. Struggling students have more success because they only have to move the minute hand within the hour. Thanks.
Thanks! Elapsed time is such a difficult skill to master---this will be so helpful! :)
