When I shared the free skip-counting pages a little while back, I mentioned that ED has been working a lot on clocks. I thought I’d share some of the clock-type activities we use in our homeschool.
I made ED a packet of time sheets from the Teacher’s Corner: Time Worksheet Generator. You can create worksheets that suit your child’s needs. You can create worksheets to the hour, half-hour, quarter hour, or by ten-minute, five minute or minute intervals. They also let you choose the styleof the clock face. I’ve pasted in a few examples below:
Mrs. Nielson has the bottom sheet available to print out too, but when we made it I felt it’d be better for the kids to write the numbers.
Here’s a close-up:
A while back I also shared a great online game that I let the kids play now and then called Stop the Clock.
Here’s a picture of Stop the Clock — Level 1 – learning time to the half hour and hour:
Here are direct links to the other levels:
Stop the Clock — Level 2 — fifteen minute intervals
Stop the Clock — Level 3 — five minute intervals
Stop the Clock — Level 4 – to the minute
Stop the Clock — Level 5 — military time (such as 18:19)
If you have younger kids just starting to tell time, you might be interested in the Kitty Clocks I made for ED a year or so ago.
If you’re interested in these two pages, you’ll need to click on both links below:
She is using them both for matching and to play a board game.
This is the board we use with ED’s clock cards (we use Fast Track for most anything when it comes to math!!). When ED flips over a 3 o’clock card, she figures out the time and moves that many spaces. She continues (drawing another card if she needs to) until she can’t move any more.
Here’s a close-up of the board if you want to make your own. The idea came from Peggy Kaye’s Games for Math. It’s a wonderful resource for making your math time more fun!
I made a gameboard similar to the one above that you can download for free over at this post: Free Ultimate Math Game Board
