What time is it?

Telling time using both analog and digital clocks is an important skill that some students struggle with. Telling Time with Big Mama Cat by Dan Harper, The Clock Struck One by Trudy Harris What Time is it? A Book of Math Riddles by Sheila Keenan and Clockwise a Time Telling Tale by Sara Pinto are a small sampling of the trade-books that help children develop an understanding of the concept of time.

Teaching Tip
Make the observance of time a natural part of each day. As you go through the schedule, emphasize the time various events take place both verbally and by noting the position of the hands on a classroom clock.

The TeAchnology and Just in Time sites houses a broad selection of time related lesson plans
