Hello and welcome to my blog! If you are a first-time visitor, I hope you enjoy what you see and come back and visit again soon. I like to blog about fun, engaging, and effective activities that I do in my 2nd grade classroom. I also am a little obsessed like ORGANIZATION, TUBS, BINS, CRATES, CONTAINERS, PRIMARY COLORS, AND CHEVRON PRINT. If you want a sneak peek into my world, click HERE!
More importantly, I am teaming up with 21 fabulous teacher bloggers for this Bright Math Ideas Blog Hop! Today I am featuring our interactive math notebooks. I love the idea of collecting all of the math skills that have been taught this year into one notebook for each child to take home and review. It warms my heart that my kids love them and are in charge of creating their own. They are sort of like mini anchor charts that are always available for referencing!
My 2nd graders are learning about telling time right now. I start with teaching the kids about the clock basics. As you can see below we are labeling the minute and hour hand. We are also labeling the five minute intervals.
Then we learn about telling time to the hour and half hour. It is important that they can tell time on an analog clock as well as a digital clock. It’s an added bonus if they can write out the words too (can we say great practice on number word spelling?!) Although you don’t see it pictured here, my students are all working with small clocks and marker boards as well. It is important to me that they are ALL engaged with both their hands AND minds.
After learning about time to the hour and half hour, we move to telling time in five minute intervals. My kids had so much fun making these clock window flaps and recording the digital time to match the analog time. When they were finished with this journal page, they walked around the classroom and found somebody to check over their answers. It worked really well!
