My students need individual mini clocks to help them learn telling time to the hour and half hour.
Tired of hearing "What time is it?" or "Are we there yet?" Imagine your 5, 6, or 7 year old knowing how to tell time on the analog clock to the hour and half hour. In a digital world this first grade year is the year your child will learn how to read time on the analog clock and watch.
My first grade class is formed by a culturally and socio-economically diverse group of students ranging from 5 to 7 years old.
My class is made up of students who require different learning styles and have special needs. This is a year-round school located in an urban area in North Carolina.
Having these mini clocks for each student in our classroom will enhance the learning of all my first grade students. Students will be more engaged when they can each manipulate the hands on the clock to show time to the hour and half hour. Using these clocks will create more proficient math students. Students will use these clocks in whole group learning, small group learning, and in their math workstations to further their content knowledge. Placing the mini clocks in the hands of these young learners is sure to create an engaged and enthusiastic time-telling classroom!
By donating to this project you will help my first grade students understand a new concept in math.
The rigor of the Common Core and the vertical alignment of our standards will be setting a strong mathematical foundation for telling time in first grade. My goal is for first grade students to leave with a strong mathematical understanding of telling time.
