Telling Time and Using it Wisely
This lesson/small unit overview that introduces how to help students not only understand how to tell time, but how to apply it to their everyday lives. My goals for teaching my students how to tell time were to have them also able to set goals and increase their stamina for independent work. In, addition, I also want them to increase their fluency in basic math facts with their newfound understanding of the value of a minute. The sole purpose was to take the concept of telling time as a second grade standard and apply it to real life situations that will increase success for a second grade student.

Learning about time and understanding the importance of time management is such a life skill. I love how this assignment teaches so many skills related to telling time and how important time is. It ties to the common core and the expectations for time assessments.
I love having the students spending time on the computer and using I-Pads. I know there are other strong Apps for the I-pad to use that can assist in the teaching of telling time.
