More Clock Work

Holly is really working on her clocks and telling time. She loved her work book, we read her story books and use the pretend clocks a lot. Today she started working on 'half past the hour' and increments of 5 minutes.

I had found this great clock project online from a first grade teachers website... for the life of me I cannot find it again. I'll keep trying and when I do, I'll add a link. Anyhow, Holly put this clock together today. We reinforced it with thicker card stock so that it will hold up for a bit.

The clock is great because it is a traditional clock with hands and normal hour positions. When you set the time, you can pull up the tab to see the relating time in increments of 5 - 5:25, 4:40, etc. It is really helping her to solidify those connections. I am sure it will still take some memorization and practice, but this one drop in the bucket to help her out!
