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.
