This “telling time” task for Autism and Special Education includes 96 time task cards and 2 file folders- the “What time is it?” (Telling Time) file folder and “Make the Time” file folder.
The “Telling Time Task Cards” are differentiated with 2 levels of difficulty (color coded and not color coded) for time by the hour, half hour, and quarter hour. Students can identify the time, and circle with dry erase, use a dot marker, or use clothes pins to choose the correct time.
These task cards can be used on their own, or with the “What time is it?” File folder. The “What time is it?” telling time file folder includes color coded hour and minute hands, as well as color coded hour and minute number icons. Students can use the clock task card as a reference to imitate the time on their own clock on the file folder. Then, they can choose the correct time on the task card. “To do” and “all done” envelopes can be used to make the file folder a structured work task.
Students can complete the folder for independent work or with a staff. If used for 1:1 work, staff can make a time on the clock for students to identify, or tell students what time to make on the clock.
The “Make the time” file folder task includes 240 color coded time cards by the hour, half hour, quarter hour, and the nearest 5 minutes. Staff decides which time cards are most appropriate for students, and puts them on the left side of the file folder. Students take the card from the left of the folder, attach it to the space below the clock, and use the color coded interactive clock hands to “make the time” on the clock. When finished with that time card, the student will put it in the “all done” envelope, and move on to the next card until all cards are completed. This tasks is best used with a staff to ensure accuracy, or for students that are already independent with telling time, and are using this task for retention or as an independent work task.
These file folders also work with the online interactive color coded clock with the same green and orange hands (website provided). Students can use the file folder clock to imitate the time on the clock on the website
