Before I teach about time, I let my students create their own clocks. They love craft! While they are having fun putting all of the clock parts together, they are learning about clock terms - the face, the hour hand, the minute hand, and the twelve hours on the clock. They get to write in the hours for themselves. I created an editable lesson plan in the form of a Word Doc. With this lesson, the students are creating color coded clocks (red and blue for hour and minute). This really helps with distinguishing between the hours and the minutes.

- Teacher Nyla
- As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
