It's About Time (K-2) + CD
22 activities – 176 pages
Young children are eager to learn how to tell time and to understand the mysteries of analog and digital clocks. It’s About Time uses a series of investigations not only to build an understanding of how to read a clock, but also to provide a solid, conceptual understanding of time and its measurement.
A unique exercise within this book has children literally building a human clock, an activity that provides a powerful visual understanding and connection of time and its sequence. They are introduced to one color-coded clock hand at a time, and they also see the special relationship between the benchmark numbers 3, 6, 9 and 12.
It’s About Time will have students sequencing events, measuring duration of time, and reading clocks. Time is read in hour, half-hour, five- and one-minute intervals. Several playful practice activities are also included in this book -- from a cake-walk game to a version of Bingo called “Time Out” -- that reinforce the students’ new abilities to tell time and make them successful clock readers.
