Title: Reading clocks to the nearest 5 minutes.
Time Frame: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Materials: Analog anchor chart, time flash cards, paper minute and hour hands, magnets, and “Clock Class Work Practice”.
Objectives: Students will understand that… time should be read on an analog and digital clock.
Students will know… where the hour and minute locations are for both the analog and digital clock.
Students will be able to….Tell and write time to the nearest 5 minutes on both an analog and digital clock.
Formative Assessment: Informal observation of whole group practice and group work and “Clock class work practice”
Activities and Procedures
1. Introduction: Review the analog and digital clock, where hour and minute can be found on both, zones of hours on analog clock, and where the minute hands needs to be for :00, :15, :30, and :45.
2. Whole group content: Explain we will be reading clocks to the nearest 5 minutes. Introduce the skip count (by 5s). Have students count along as you label the anchor chart with the skip count. Students update their analog sheet with skip count. Model how to read an analog clock to the nearest five minutes and practice reading as a class.
3. Partner practice: Students are broken into partnerships. They are provided flashcards with digital clocks and flashcards with analog clocks. They are instructed to sort through these cards and match them appropriately. Once they finish, they are instructed to play the matching memory game with the same cards.
4. Individual practice: Students complete “Clock Class Work Practice” independently, support as needed.
5. Conclusion: Students are asked what was challenging and what was easy. Review of digital and analog clocks takes place. Remaining questions are addressed. Students are told they will continue practicing this skill next class.
