Begin the lesson by briefly reviewing information students have already learned then introduce them to telling time with 5 minutes by having them watch a video. Continue the lesson by detailing how an analog clock has ten 5-minute increments and six 10-minute increments, and go over each with students. Guide students in completing an activity in which they adjust an analog clock to display the time they must leave their house to join their friend’s pool party!
Continue the lesson by having students read, and pronounce the various times on their new class schedule. Then, have students practice their time writing skills by helping “Clocky the Caterpillar” read his clocks. Explain the difference between A.M. and P.M. and have students practice differentiating between the two.
