I am linking up with Manic Monday!!
and Friday Freebies!
I revised my snowman sequencing numbers activity. It was the first activity that I had really made and posted on TpT. I used some new clip art and added a couple of worksheets to it. You can click on the picture to download.
Here are my kiddos in action doing this activity. We laid out all of the snowballs upside down in the middle of the table (I used 1-50 when I first introduced the activity). They each picked 5 snowballs and put them in order from smallest to largest. There are a couple of worksheets that the students can do along with this activity (OOOPS- I forgot to take pictures of that part…)
I have also been working on my newest creation. I made a TIME unit that has activities to the hour and half. I want to share some of them with you because the kids absolutely loved them!! I have highlighted all of the activities below.
You can click on any of the pictures below to take you there…
There’s “snow” TIME like the “present”
Students have to look at two clocks (digital and analog) and decide if they show the same time or not. If so, they put it under true, if not it goes under false. There is also a sort for hour and half hour. Both sorts have worksheets to go along with the activity.
Next up- this was our favorite!!
I made three books (about mid first grade reading level) of Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and The Three Bears. In these books, the students have to find out what time the different events occurred. Then they cut and paste the correct clock into their book. There is a little bit of elapsed time in the books (I couldn’t believe how well they did with it!!)
They even wanted me to make a Gingerbread Man one… I just couldn’t bring myself to do it after making the three… maybe some day!!
Then there is…
I don’t have any pictures of this activity but the students make a book that goes through the events of a typical school day (is there such a thing??? a typical school day??- I don’t think so)
Here is a sample of one of the pages.
How can you not include Hickory Dickory Dock in some way when teaching time? We had a great time singing our own different versions of the well known nursery rhyme. Here is a picture.
We would draw out a time card as we said the rhyme and we wrote the time on our own clocks with a dry erase marker. There are also some worksheets that the students have to figure out the mystery time that the mouse went up the clock.
And yes, it was December when we did this activity and I was happily thinking of spring as I looked at all of the flowers around my room… This is a read the room activity (great for centers or small group). I hung the analog clocks around the room and the students had to walk around and find them and write the corresponding digital time. There are clock worksheets for hour, half hour, or both.
There are also a couple of different games…
Students race around the tracks several times until the inside board is completely covered up. There are three different board games. There is time to the hour, half hour, and both together.
For this game the students have draw from different clocks and have to match that clock with one on the board. The object is to get 4 in a row.
Please bear with me- if can’t figure out how to turn these pictures…. ugghhh…
AND… last but not least, I made six different assessments.
If you made it through this entire post, I congratulate you! I haven’t really done a post like this before showcasing a product that I have made, but I know when I check out other blogs, if there is something I am interested in- I like to see how it was used. So, thank you for stopping by! You can click on any of the pictures above to check it out- only $6:)
Till next TIME…. (I couldn’t resist)…
