Objectives of the Unit
the activities

Counting and writing down the appropriate minutes

    • Cuantosminutos hay en:
      • 1 hora? _______ minutos
      • Media hora? ______ minutos
      • Un cuarto de hora? _____ minutos
      • Trescuartos de hora? ______ minutos
  • The Why:
  • It is important that the students learn and are able to independently understand that the minutes are in increments of five. It is also important that students can figure out the minutes when they stand alone in an hour. Also the social terminology of time.
The Activities

Looking at an Analog Clock and Writing the Numerical Time Down

Students are looking at the images of time represented, interpreting what they mean and then transferring that to written form

  • The Why:It is important for students to see the transference between the visual (pictorial) and written (numerical) form of time.
The Activities Cont.
the activities cont1

Matching (1)

In groups of 3, students will be given sets of eggs that have the analog representation and the numerical representation, their task is to match them

  • The Why: This method is more of a practice and drill type exercise done in groups. By now, it can be assumed that they understand the concepts, now they are just practicing their fluency with telling and identifying time.
The Activities Cont.

Me despierto a las…

This is an activity that I send home with the children. They also include activities like go to sleep, eat lunch, what they do after school and do their homework

  • The Why: This is so they can relate time telling to their dayand understand how this concept relates to them. Also understanding the importance of telling time.
The Activities Cont.

Son Las…

Student will see time written in word form instead of numerical time. It is important to go over the format of how these sentences are written

  • The Why: Now that students understand how to tell time numerically, they need to be able to associate those numbers to written words so that they are able to it put it in the context of writing
The Activities Cont.

What Time Means To Us


Students will write short story about their day including the time of day.

  • The Why: This is a summative assignment. I am looking to see that students can put real life context to their knowledge of telling time by incorporating into a story about their day.
