1-2-3 Come Add Some "Egg-citement" To Teaching Time With Me
Are you working on telling time with your kiddos? What’s the Eggs-act Time? packet, is filled with fun analog and digital time activities with a spring-theme. It's and "oldie but goodie" that's been around for a while, but is still a popular download.
Your students will enjoy making their own egg clock. Simply run off the pattern on a variety of colors of construction paper.
Teachers can easily whole- group assess, by asking students to show them an “egg-sact” time. Children adjust the paperclip hands on their clock and hold it up. Teachers can see at a glance who is having difficulty.
I’ve also included an egg spinning game as well. Children play in groups of 2-4 and take turns spinning.
Whatever number they land on, they trace and then write that time to the hour. The student who fills up their time card first is the winner.
There are also digital and analog traceable time cards so you can make Memory Match games, as well as Itty Bitty booklets, or play the game “I Have Who Has?” Cards are for time to the hour, half hour, as well as quarter hour times too.
For example, the child with the analog 2:00 O’clock card, asks for the digital 2:00 time card. Students can also sequence these cards.
Play “Speed-Flash” where the teacher flashes a time card and students show that time on their egg clock. The child who shows the correct time the quickest, by holding up their clock, earns a sticker for the back of their egg.
Match Three is yet another game with 3 matching time cards to the hour: an analog clock, a large digital time and a time that is written out. Students can play a Memory Match game with these by finding all 3 matches, or play a card game with another partner that works like Go Fish.
This game is called, Do You Have The Time? Deal out 5 cards and put the rest face down. Students match their groups of 3 with the cards they have. When it is their turn they may take a card from the pile or ask their partner “Do you have 2:00 0’clock? “
If their partner has any time card that is 2 O’clock they give it to them etc. Play continues ‘til all of the cards are matched or when the timer rings.
The student with the most matches is the winner. When you are done with the various activities, you can reward your students with a certificate of praise bookmark, which is also included in the packet.

Thanks for visiting. I just glanced at the clock on my computer; (So glad that that's there, as I totally lose track of how my morning is flying by!) and it's time to do some major work cleaning up my garden.
Winter has certainly wrecked havoc out back, and I'm anxious to take advantage of a 50 degree day, where it's finally warm enough to work! Wishing you a prosperous day.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Fun November Math Activities and Games With Me
This whopping 70-page "print & go" packet has a lot of quick, easy and fun math activities, covering a variety of Common Core standards.
The activities are pretty versatile, so you can differentiate, making the lesson easier or more difficult to fit your needs and grade level. (PK-1st)
For example, here's a sample of all of the options you have for the "Hats Off" worksheet.
Because students get to play a game using dice or one of the spinners, they really enjoy the math practice.
I think you'll also like the "Show Me the Number" worksheets.
I have one for numbers 1-10, 1-20, and 1-30.
Simply run off an entire week or month's worth and pick a different number each day.
Because you've already explained it once, there's no need for continuous directions and your kiddos can get right down to business.
Use the packet throughout the month for early finishers, extra help for strugglers, brain breaks, centers, review, table top lessons, assessments, homework, "just for fun" plug-ins, when you have a few spare minutes, or tuck a few in your sub folder.
If you're required to send something home over your school breaks, pick and choose what's appropriate and put together a Happy Thanksgiving packet.
There are worksheets, as well as dice, spinner and paper-pencil games for the following:
As you can see, I did a ton of work, so that you don't have to! Click on the link to grab your copy of the Common Core Thanksgiving Math Packet, and let the educational fun begin! Would love your feed back, as I'm thinking of making one of these packets for winter. firstname.lastname@example.org or you can leave a comment below.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for visiting. It's time for a much-needed break. I'll be braving this snowy day (Yes here in Michigan we are already blanketed in white.) My daughter is treating me to a pedicure, so I'm off to go pamper myself. Wishing you a relaxing day!

1-2-3 Come Play A Telling Time Game With Me!
I keep telling myself "April showers bring May flowers" to help chase the dreary-drip feelings away, because of all the incessant rain we've had here in Michigan for the last 4 days straight.
I do love how the air smells, but still, a little sunshine would certainly be welcome.
Since it was pouring outside, I decided to make a rain game to help students review and practice telling time to the hour in one game, and telling time to the half hour in another. (Common Core State Standard: 1.MD.3)
Students spin the clock spinner. Whatever number they land on, children write the digital time at the top of the raindrop, and then draw hands for that time on their analog clock as well.
If the paperclip spinner lands between two numbers they may choose either. The first one with all of their raindrops filled in and colored is the winner.
If you want everyone to practice completing the clocks, then have those who have finished, color the children or the turtle on the page 'til everyone gets done.
If you'd like to review simple addition, instead of using the spinner, have students use 1st one, and then 2 dice to achieve the time.

1-2-3 Come Fly A Kite With Me!
As the wind is whipping around your school this month, are you looking for some kite-themed activities? Well you've come to the right place! I'll talk about a few of my favorites here, and then give you a link for the rest.
To help you review the Common Core State Standard: MD.1.3, I've designed a kite clock. The game is entitled "Time Flies!" and reviews digital as well as analog time.
Click on the link to view/download the analog and digital time - kite clock.
If you're working on colors and patterning with your students, you'll enjoy the Kite Patterning packet.
You can quickly and easily whole group assess your students, as they have fun adding a variety of colored strips, to make a patterned kite tail.
Kites come in a large array of sizes and shapes, so I thought it would be fun to see if I could find examples of all of the 3D shapes.
I learned a lot doing this research, and found many examples of spheres, cones, cubes and cylinders.
In the easy reader: 3D Kites, students trace and write the shape words as well as glue the matching pictures to the numbered boxes. Click on the link to view/download the 3D Kite booklet
The easy-reader kite-booklet packet, is chock full of -ite & -ight activities, like the Zite Story Poem.
There's also some trace and write worksheets as well as well as a graphing extension, plus 25 traceable word cards.
The packet also includes an -ite -ight word family kite "craftivity."

I continue to plug along completing the Telling Time Cards for each month, and just finished the March clock set with shamrocks. Click on the link to view/download them.
I also have a variety of other telling time games with a shamrock theme, that are great throughout the month of March, but especially nice to plug in for St. Patrick’s Day, when you might want to add a bit more fun to the day because it’s “special”.
Start off by offering a quick and easy Make A Shamrock Clock center. Students cut out the circle, glue it to a paper plate and then count by 5’s to write in the helpful numbers around the clock.
Punch a hole in the center, fasten a brass brad and attach a small and large paperclip and you’re done! Students can take turns calling out a time. Everyone manipulates the paperclip hands to make that time and holds up their clock to show the answer. It's a quick & easy way to whole-group assess.
I’ve also included a plain clock so that you can use it anytime, without the shamrock theme idea. Click on the link to view/download the Shamrock Clock
Bingo Dot Clock is another fun way to whole-group assess students. Call on a quiet child to “spy” a time to the hour.
Students trace the number, bingo dot the circle, manipulate the paperclip hands to show the correct time and then hold up their clock when done.
The first child with the correct answer gets to spy the next time for everyone to find. Click on the link to view/download Bingo Dot Shamrock Clock game.
Spin to Win also reinforces time to the hour. Students can either spin the shamrock clock spinner or roll a pair of dice.
Rolling dice involves simple addition and subtraction. Students trace the digital time on their time card and then write it. The first student to completely fill their time card in is the winner.
This game also includes traceable digital time cards to the hour and half hour + a certificate of praise bookmark. Click on the link to view/download Shamrock Spin To Win game
Shamrocks on a Roll also involves dice and addition and subtraction. Students have the option to trace the numbers on their shamrock clock or write them in. Click on the link to view/download Shamrocks on a Roll
Finally, Shamrock Skip Counting includes a shamrock spinner for counting by 2’s, 3’s, 5’s, and 10’s. There is also a spinner for counting by 1’s for younger students.
Knowing how to skip count is important in telling time. Click on the link to view/download Skip Counting With Shamrocks
