Yes, this product is named after an MC Hammer song. I have a hard time not breaking out the Hammer Time (and parachute pants) while teaching time!! :-P
This packet has two major components:
- “Stop! It’s Partner Time”- A Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour Partner Game, with a fun whole class twist
- “Stop! It’s Center Time”- Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour Center adapted from the partner game
There are comprehensive direction pages for each activity with pictures from my personal classroom to get a good look at how the partner game should pan out! I’m a total visual learner so I’m a sucker for product with pictures, hope they help!
I've also included my framework for using Mathematical Accountability Talk in Lower Elementary. This includes descriptions, examples, cheat sheet and pictures. This framework will set your classroom up for critical thinking in math!
I hope you enjoy using this AWESOME game within your guided instructions for teaching time to the hour and half hour. And I also hope this is a center you can put to good use for further independent practice!
Check out the preview pages to see some thumbnails of this awesome product!
