minute (unit of time = to 60 seconds)
hour (unit of time = to 60 min)
halfhour (unit of time = to 30 min)
minute hand (longer hand on an analog clock)
hour hand (shorter hand on an analog clock) 


3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes

1. Read analog and digital clocks
2. Write the time down
3. Draw hands on clocks to show the time 


4. Objectives

Introduce telling time to the hour and halfhour



5. Materials and Aids

Demonstration clock
miniclocks for each student
white board
markers
paper
pencil
math packet
teacher manual 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
1. Math Center (days in school, date)
2. Introduce the analog clock



B. Development
1. Have students point out the clock(s) in the room. Watches: analog
or digital?
2. Identify and match vocab with the analog clock
3. Explain how to write time: hour comes first: minutes after
4. Demonstrate how to draw the minute & hour hand on a clock 


C. Practice
1. Students will go back to their desk with a miniclock and get
out their white boards
2. I will tell the students a time and they will model the time on
their miniclocks
3. After that, students will write on their board the time that I
model for them 


D. Independent Practice
Students will complete pages 435, 436 on their own. 


F. Checking for understanding
I will continue to ask students if they have questions. I will walk
around and monitor their independent practice. 


G. Closure
We will review the new vocab that the students learned. I will then
ask them to tell me what time it is when we are done. I will tie in
that telling time is important for our daily life (i.e. being to school
on time, going to the doctor or other appointments, going to bed.
