 1-2-3 Come Do Some Telling Time Activities With Me

Since March is national reading month, and Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat is a symbol for Read Across America, I like to do all sorts of Seuss-themed activities in all my subjects, not just reading.  With that in mind, I designed some telling time activities using Seuss's iconic Cat in the Hat's hat. 

Practicing analog & digital time to the hour and half hour with these Seuss-themed  games, make learning these concepts less tedious and more fun.

The packet includes:

seuss activities, seuss games, telling time games, telling time activities, cat in the hat activities, cat in the hat games, common core seuss, analog time activities, analog time games, digital time games, digtital time activities, clock cards, clock posters, telling time pocket chart cards, telling time assessments, assessments for telling time to the hour, assessments for telling time to the half hour, telling time certificates, 1.MD.3Two "It's Time For Seuss" dice games.  (One to the hour, the other to the half hour.) There's a large worksheet as well as a smaller one, with two-on-a-page for quick printing.

You may find that some children will draw the hour hand on a clock that shows 12:30 directly on the 12, which is incorrect. Use the poster to explain things, then hang it up as a reminder.

I thought it would be cute to make the tip of my clothespins look like mini Cat in the Hat hats.  Simply trim and stick on a white Avery address label, then add stripes with a red marker. 

Toss the cards and a few clothespins into a Seuss hat or other container.  To make this independent center game self-checking, simply put a dot on the back of each card.  When a child clips a clothespin to the correct digital time, they can flip the card over to see if their clothespin is covering the dot.

There are 6 clock cards on a page (2 pages total) for easy printing.

Students choose a partner, and play "Speed" to see who will be the first to sequence all of their cards. You could also use them to play Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?" games.

(One for time to the hour, the other time to the half hour.)

All 12 time cards are on one page, including a cover for their booklet.  These booklets could also be used as a fun way to assess your students too.

DianeThanks for visiting today.  It's 27 degrees this morning, so I'm not sure if that qualifies as March's weather coming in like a lion or a lamb.  Regardless, I'm certainly glad it's March, which brings us one step closer to springtime! 

I'm off to do a zillion and one errands, not the least of which is to mail our taxes at the post office.  So happy that's done!  Wishing you a sunshiny day.
