It's About Time

This week we started learning to tell time.  We are starting with time to the hour.  I started off by introducing my students to JUDY!!! 
We talked about the parts of the clock.  I always tell my students since minute is a longer word . . . it gets the longer hand!! ;)    It’s a fun way to help them remember.  Next I read the students the book, The Grouchy Ladybug.   While reading the story I had one student match the time in the book to the time on JUDY!!
 Next, I wanted my students to have hands on practice with clocks so I had my students make these clocks:

The students picked any hour to set their clock to and then wrote a little sentence to tell others what time their clock said!!  We then hung them out the hall.  My plan is to take away the sentences next week and replace them with letters.  The students will have to tell me what time goes with each letter.
