To teach analog, or not to teach analog? Understanding the concept of time moving can be lost on people who only know how to read digital clocks. Analog clocks are a vivid, visual representation of how time moves and how to measure time. Time phrases like, 'quarter to, half-past, and quarter past' are difficult to understand without the big ole' clock with minute and hour hands.
So, why not make it fun? Use this interactive and fun math menu to give your 2-3 grade students practice on telling time to the minute, in intervals, and in elapsed time. The second page contains 9 sets of flashcards that students can make on their own. Each set students can make a time on the analog clock and then represent that time on the digital. These flashcards can be used as partner practice, matching, or sent home for remediation.
