Here’s a multi-sensory approach to telling time! My students were really excited yesterday when I broke out the playdough.
I found my free anchor chart for our group discussion prior to our lesson here:
My students took turns reading the time from laminated digital clock cards. Then, they used their playdough for the minute and the hour hands. Counting by 5’s was another part of our lesson to find the correct place for our minute hands. Last, they wrote the digital time in their clock playdough mats to reinforce placement of the hour and minutes on a digital clock.
