This first one is written by Ms. Meisha and it’s about time. Now it’s time for everybody else in class to send me their lesson plan.

Clocks and Time Lesson Plan
To introduce the elements of a clock and explain their functions.
To teach telling time to the hour.
Time Needed: approx. 20-25 min
Materials Needed: worksheet, glue, crayons, markers, colored paper
Since there are 60 minutes in an hour children must be able to read and order numbers to 60 before they can read time on the digital clock. Since time is often referred to in fractional terms on analog clocks it will be helpful if children have an understanding of halves and fourths.
Direct student’s attention to the clock. How many big numbers are on the clock? Have students point to the hour hand. Tell them that when the hour hand moves from one number to the next, one hour has passed. What can you do in an hour?
Have students point to the minute hand. Tell them that when the minute hand moves from one tick mark to the next, one minute has passed. What can you do in a minute?
- Have the children fill out the worksheets while in class.
- After they have the succeeded in doing the worksheet, have them glue it to construction paper and design it however they wish.
Children will have filled out the three worksheets with the correct answers.
Great job Meisha, thanks for sending it in. Would anybody like a downloadable copy? Why of course you would. Click here.
