Telling Time Book September 07 2010
This printable book is ideal for a back-to-school lesson about telling time.
Students create their own stories and learn to tell time.
- Telling Time Book
- Hole Punch & Yarn or Stapler
- Create a book as an example before the lesson. (It can be helpful to make the hour red and the minutes blue on both the digital and analog clock.) Bumble Bear is a character in a book I wrote while I was teaching 2nd grade Writer's Workshop.
- Review telling time (analog and digital) using a large clock in your classroom. If you don't already have an instructional clock, here's a free, printable clock. If you are looking for a new morning meeting set, here's an instructional clock to purchase as part of your Morning Meeting Bulletin Board Set.
- Read your Telling Time Book to the students.
- Discuss and write adjectives and verbs on the board. Explain that the book they create will include adjectives and verbs. (e.g. pages 3, 9 and 11).
- Students decide on a character.
- Students write and illustrate their books. (Use pencils, so corrections can be made.)
- Students help each other proofread.
- Students share their books.
- Display books on your classroom bulletin board (optional).
