Today we discussed time. I asked the students what they understood about Time. here is what they came up with:

  • The numbers on the clock skip count by 5's.
  • The large hand points to the minute.
  • The little hand points to the hour.
  • The clock shows the numbers 1 - 12.
  • The hour hand moves when the minute hand passes 12.
  • A year = 365 days.
  • A week = 7 days.
  • A day = 24 hours.
  • An hour = 60 minutes.
  • 1 Minute = 60 seconds.
  • AM / PM
  • Moon changes throughout the month.
  • Sundial can be used to tell time.
  • Sometimes, there are Roman Numerals on the face of the clock.
  • Digital & Analog clocks are used to tell time.
  • There are 4 seasons in a year.

For 2 tickets tomorrow, I asked the kids to research who developed the concept of time.

You could help your child at home with telling time. Just ask them to take a glance at your clock and to report the time to you. Remind them that they can also skip count by 5's to figure it out!
