Winter: Snowman Craft: Telling Analog & Digital Time To The Hour & Half Hour
The snowman clock matching game, can be used for an independent math center,where students match the analog and digital clocks with the appropriate hatband, arranging them on the snowman.
You can also use the snowman and his puzzle pieces, as an interesting and fun way to individually assess a child, or . . .
Do the snowman clock as a whole-group craftivity, where each student makes their own, to be used as a quick, easy & super-fun way to whole-group assess, as students practice telling analog & digital time to the hour or half hour.
To use the snowman as a whole-group assessment tool, run the blank clocks off on glossy photo paper and trim.
Students glue it to their snowman to create a mini dry erase board.
Do the same thing for the digital time square.
Call out a time.
Using a dry erase marker, children draw the hands to show that time, then write it digitally in the rectangle.
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty.
To use the snowman as a clock, print off the blank clock pattern and trim.
Students glue it to their snowman and poke a hole in the center. Attach card stock "hands", or use a large and small paperclip, attached with a brass brad, that children manipulate to show whatever time is called for.
Another option is to give each student a set of clocks and digital times. They trim, collate and staple to their snowman to create Itty Bitty time booklets.
I’ve also included a set of mitten-themed telling time cards, which you can also use in a variety of ways: flashcards, games, a bulletin board display or snip in half to make puzzles.
The cards reinforce digital, as well as analog time to the hour and half hour.
The packet also includes: two assessment templates, a blank set of cards to program with whatever, as well as a black and white clock page, with a cover, so that your kiddos can make an “Itty Bitty” Telling Time booklet.
With the update, there's now a bonus alarm clock pattern, as well as a white option for the time to the half hour clocks.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy practicing time-telling skills, with a frosty friend.
