Help me give my students practice clocks, time flash cards, and card games to assist them in learning to tell time.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I loop with my students from first to second grade. There are about 70 students in our grade level. My school is in an urban setting in a large city. I work with small groups throughout my day and support several classroom teachers with ideas and activities for their scholars. Learning is hard work! However, we can still have fun!
My students absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging tools that allow them learn, play and find solutions on their own.
It makes my heart happy when I hear little ones say that they love math or when I see their eyes light up when they realize they truly understand a concept they have been struggling to understand.
I am so lucky to be part of this process for many little scholars.
Telling time on an analog clock is a skill that is quickly becoming a lost art. Children are surrounded by digital clocks on the microwave, T.V.s, phones, etc. Many homes do not have an analog clock in them. It is a skill that must be taught.
Students love the challenge of learning to tell time and are so proud when they accomplish this goal.
It takes practice; a lot of practice. My students need a variety of hands-on tools in our learning space to make this happen.
Practice clocks used in small groups or whole class setting allows students the opportunity to practice matching an analogy clock with a digital time. Flashcards allow students to practice with each other and learn together. Playing cards are just plain fun! Students will often ask for learning games during so they can practice the skills they know they need to work on. This reinforces the idea that learning is fun!
