Telling time is another first grade standard that we want to make sure that Brooklyn has all figured out before entering second grade. I have to be honest…I was VERY unsure of how much Brooklyn knew about the clock/time. I had not spent much time on it at home and it seemed according to her IEP work at school that she had not grasped much.
The picture below is how we decided to work on time. Three clocks (bought at Target in the $1.00 section) We clipped them onto her eye gaze board.
We then hold up the clocks and ask her to show us “which one says six thirty?” or whatever time we are asking. She uses her eye gaze to look at the clock that is showing the correct time.
I am happy to say that she is kicking butt with recognizing the time! She seems to have mastered hour and half hours – now on to quarter hours!!! Yep….my daughter never ceases to amaze me!!!
