Discussion for Telling Time Lesson
Christopher Munn (Teacher (K-12))
This lesson is very useful for helping children learn to tell time using hands on a clock. There is a good balance between worksheets, technology, watching, doing, etc. The methods are varied and the content is relevant. I highly recommend this lesson plan.
You also will need the ipad adapter to connect to a projector.

As someone who never learned to tell time, the use of an Elmo and and iPad app would have been extremely helpful in making learning to tell time tangible and seemingly possible. I think this lesson would do very well as a stand-along instructional plan for young elementary school students.

This seems like it is a good lesson for kids learning to tell time. There are hand-on demos of providing the students with mini-clocks, and also using an IPad to look at telling time programs online. In addition, the worksheets provide the additional practice that students need when learning this. Sometimes it takes kids a quite a while to learn to tell time. I would also add some other kind of telling time tool in the form of a puzzle that they can take apart and put back together again. It would give them more hands-on experience in learning to tell time.

This resource is a lesson plan designed to help students learn to tell time. It offers a nice mixture of "analog" and "digital" pedagogical approaches for use in the classroom and should attract students with a variety of learning styles and needs. Especially useful is the take home element which will help students make the lesson real in their own environment on their own terms.

Fun teaching activity for time. I wish I had access to iPads in my classroom; the app sounds like a great tool and it would've been great to use in my classroom.
