Watch the dots on the clock
Submitted by Cathy (SA) (11-10-2012)
How often do we say to children,' you have 20mins to complete the task.' or 'in 5 mins it is time to pack up'
Children find time a hard concept to pick up and monitor so in my classroom I always put on a digital timer to count down the time but more importantly I put a green dot on the wall clock to show the starting time and a red dot to show the finishing time.
Children can glance at the clock if needed and watch how close the hand is getting to the red dot, which indicates the time to pack up.
They love this!
Hope it helps.
