I have given all the children a clock to take home with them. We have been focusing on telling the time this week, but many of the children still need to practise these skills. I would really appreciate it if you could find a little bit of time each to day to practise the following skills:
- Telling the time to the nearest 15 minutes (o’clock, quarter past, half past, quarter to)
- Telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes (eg. 5 minutes past 12, 25 minutes to 6)
They can put the hands in the correct place for a time of your choosing, or they can tell you the time if you manoeuvre the hands on the clock. Also, incidental activities such as asking them the time on a normal clock at different times of the day would help.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
