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!
