Telling Time

We've been working on telling time in class. Some of my kiddos are doing AWESOME.  Some are having such a hard time.  It happens every year.  Some are telling time when they come to me...that's not always a good thing because then I hear "Mrs. Davis, it's almost lunch time."---then again, if they have a hard time telling time I hear "Is it lunch time yet?" 

I just wanted to share a few YouTube videos that we've enjoyed so far during our telling time unit. 

One song that we enjoyed using our own clocks with was the 2nd one listed on here.
I can say I snapped a picture where at least half of my room was engaged! :)
 They had fun singing and showing the time that was called out. 
I then had them partner up and ask their partner to show them a time they called out while they both showed the time.  Then they compared their answers.  

We also invented our own little chant.  We say it with a little beat.
"Big hand on the 12...we say o'clock.  Big hand on the 6...we say thirty"
"Minute hand on the 12...we say o'clock.  Minute hand on the 6...we say thirty."

They thought we needed to record our own YouTube video...they thought we sounded awesome! :)

I made this last year..it's not fancy, but it helps.
If you want a copy of it, you can click the image above.

I also wanted to give a copy of my new Easter centers (Hippity Hoppity) to the first 3 to comment.  
Have a great night! :)
