ARR me hearties! Use pirates to make learning about time "Shiver their Timbers"! Start with a six page read-aloud original story to get your students excited about reviewing telling time, followed by skill sheets for practice. This resource is perfect for both Common Core classrooms, and those using their own state standards.
Common Core Standards addressed:
1.MD.3, 2.MD.7, 3.MD.1
This resource is designed to reinforce, differentiate, or remediate time skills from the first to third grade. Most pages are short with 4-10 questions on each page. This makes them useful for morning work, or for a quick check up.
There are six skill sheets for each grade level with the exception of third grade which has seven. Each skill sheet comes with a grading key to make checking papers quicker. Two sheets in the third grade do not have grading keys, as they are individualized.
This resource includes:
