Teaching about Telling the Time

Time Lesson Plan, Telling Time unit plan, Elapsed Time word problems

Students need to learn to tell the time as a part of daily life.  This knowledge is important for being on time, understanding schedules and timetables, and being able to read both analog and digital clocks.  Through this unit, students will tell time to the hour, half-hour, quarter-hour, and at five minute intervals. They will demonstrate telling time and applying appropriate vocabulary to their daily activities.  This unit is an integrated unit: the first two lessons are vocabulary lessons introducing the related vocabulary, their definitions - time words - second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, decade, century and millennium.  

The remaining three lessons are math lessons - matching the analog time to digital time, drawing the hands of the clock to match the time given, calculating elapsed time, etc. It also includes a 'race with the clock' board game.

About Me

My photo
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!
