These activities are designed to help students understand time as it relates to activities and events in their lives. Pictures are used to visually tell the event as it occurs, along with a simple story/explanation of the actions. Questions are asked to clarify how much time it takes to complete each action, as well as to determine if the student is able to remember the details and sequence in which the events took place. The goal is to understand the general concept of how long it takes for each event to happen compared to a full day’s schedule. Mastering this level of understanding time allows the students to predict and plan ahead.
Only basic math skills are involved as the activities address language time concepts, not math concepts. The students can choose the method of recording the time and decide if they should use the clocks, the daily schedules or the calendar. 60 reproducible pages. Grades: 2nd – 5th
