One Hand at a Time. Using a One-Handed Clock To Teach Time-Telling Skills. Primary Grades.
Smith, Patricia E.
Many elementary teachers who have taught time-telling skills would propose that the mathematical skills associated with time-telling are among the most difficult for young students to learn. This booklet was developed to relate some of the concepts of time to physical models, providing methods for isolating specific time-telling concepts within a concrete framework. The time-telling of each hand of the clock is presented separately, with the major focus on using the hour hand. The booklet contains stories, activities, games, bulletin board ideas, and worksheets designed to accommodate a range of teaching and learning styles. Many of the activities in the booklet's seven sections are also designed to help integrate mathematics with other areas of the elementary school curriculum, such as social studies, language arts, and science. Reproducible worksheets and blackline masters are included in the back of the book. (TW)
