Here’s a collection of resources that are useful for teaching time.
1. Making Clocks
Making paper plate clocks is an engaging way to introduce children to telling the time. I love clock designs where the children can write the numbers independently because it is a useful way to assess their number writing skills. I created some templates to make a variety of animal themed clocks or a flower clock.
This template is available as part of a pack which also includes time worksheets and a time bingo game.
2. Interactive Tutorial and Time Worksheet Maker
Time Monsters is a real handy site for making your own time worksheets. You can type in your own title, move the hands to where you want them and select from various worksheet styles (e.g. draw hands, write the time). I love that it has the hands in different colours too. You can access the worksheet maker from the top of the home page http://www.timemonsters.com/.
This site also has a range of interactive tutorials.
3. Hickory Dickory Dock Song
This is great for learning about o’clock.
4. “What’s The Time Mr Wolf?” game
This game is a fun way to learn about time language such as o’clock. If you need the instructions they are available at Kids Spot.
5. O’clock and Half Past Video
There are a lot of useful free videos on youtube. I like this one because it highlights the hands and has special sound effects.
6. Interactive Maths Games
For a list of interactive time games see Maths Games.
I hope this has given you a few ideas.
Happy teaching! :)
