Reflection: Staircase of Complexity "Time" For My Catch - Section 2: Introducing Clocks and Telling Time to the Hour


Although, I am officially introducing the concept of time today, I have been talking  about it all year long.  I write the times on our cards for our daily schedule and I reference the clock when we are working for set periods of time.  

I am focusing on the hour times now. Once I introduce our fractions unit, I will focus on the concept of half hour times.  It is logical to wait on the half hour times till then.  The concept of half is still not clear for most first graders.
