Telling time is something many of us are tackling in our classrooms right now, but it can easily be made part of your regular daily routines and discussions throughout the year.
By posting transition times in a place near your clock where students will see them, and by using time language in your classroom, you can help your students develop their ability to easily recognize the analog time.
For example, rather than saying, "Time for recess, boys and girls!" you can say, "Look at the clock. It is now 9:40. In five minutes it will be recess!"
Having these significant times posted gives students a reference to use throughout the day! Have a tip or trick for teaching students to tell time? Leave it in the comments below, or link up a post of your own!
