Happy Monday, friends! This morning started out a little rough… Joelle and I stayed in bed until 6:55ish. We have to leave the house at 7:14. We ran around like crazy people, but managed to get here on time! Let’s just say it’s a casual, ponytail kind of day!
This weekend was cold and rainy, but we did manage to go out to dinner and do lots of relaxing!!!
This week in math we are continuing to tell time. Texas changed up our standards this year so we are now telling time to the minute. We started off reviewing time to the five minutes with a little slideshow I made. I will be adding this to my “It’s About Time” unit tonight! So, if you have purchased it previously, please make sure you redownload later on today!
Each student used a white board to record the time shown, and then we checked it together! The big clocks on my screen really helped us to be able to see the clocks closely and made counting by fives super easy!
After reviewing, each student made their very own watch from THIS freebie by CreateEducateInspire. I passed out sticky notes with different times for each student to make.
We did a quick “Find a Friend” activity. They had to find a watch and read 6 times correctly before joining us back on the carpet. Then, we discussed AM vs PM. We went through a typical school-day schedule… talked about when AM changes to PM… discussed AM and PM activities, etc. So, we covered a lot of concepts with just one simple activity!
My students also worked on a flower for our Garden of Time. This time I let them choose a time to make. They also had to write an activity that they do during that time of day.
And now my math bulletin board is updated and looking quite spiffy!
