Product Swap - Fun Telling Time Activity

Today I'm participating in Jessica Stanford's Magical Product Swap!

In fourth grade we no longer set aside time in our math pacing guide to focus on telling time.  The hope is that students will come to us already able to read the clock.  The reality is that this is not always the case.  While looking around online I found the coolest telling time activity on Teachers Pay Teachers. This activity was created by Lacie Brown from Polka Dots & Pencils. You can find her Teacher Pay Teacher store here.

This activity is a rotation game for telling time to the minute using digital and analog clocks.  I placed each sheet in a different spot around the room and students rotated through the four stations with their answer sheet, a clipboard and pencil. 

My students had a blast visiting each of 4 different stations:  telling time on an analog clock, telling time on a digital clock, matching analog and digital times, and drawing times on an analog clock.

Not only did students have fun, but this activity was a great review of previously taught clock reading skills.

I am so glad that I found Lacie's blog and TPT store.  Lacie has taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in South Carolina for the past 4 years.  Pop on over to Lacie's blog and check out all her great ideas!

Great product and great review! It's so true that kids leave third grade still needing to learn how to tell time. Glad your kids got a review!
