Math Tub Time!

We just finished place value {I looove Cara's Packet of Place Value Fun} and I feel like my kiddos are getting it!  Even though we are finished with this topic, I still like to stick a few of those games in my math tubs.

My kiddos love memory/matching games and this one is from my




I feel like time is so fun to teach! It's awesome to see the kiddos telling you what time lunch starts {only if they raise their hand, of course!}. They are loving this game, "Rock Around the Clock" from my "Telling Time Packet".



You play music and the kiddos dance around the classroom, when the music stops, they find a different desk and write any time {whatever time you are working on} they want {digital}. Then, I start the music again {they dance} and when the music stops, they find a different seat and draw the analog clock time to match the digital time. I check them off, they erase their boards, and we play again. :)
The mats are laminated and we use dry-erase markers on them.



Check out my cuties dancing!  Notice the boy on the floor doing the "worm". :)






This one is also from my "Telling Time Packet". Why are kids so obsessed with spinners?  They spin the spinner and make that time on their analog {Judy clock} clock. If you don't have a set of Judy Clocks, you can use the DIY cardstock clock that I provide in the packet.






Here's one of the most popular games that my kiddos loooovvvee {you might have seen this from last year, but I thought I'd share it again}.

Here is a game for teaching/practicing time! I have left the clocks blank so that all grade levels can insert the times that they are working on. In partners, each player takes a turn drawing a card. Then, they write down the digital time on their recording sheet.  Watch out for that fly in that pile! If you pick one, you lose a turn!  The first player to fill up their sheet is the winner!

Rachelle,
My comment numbers have disappeared. Do you have the code for renumbering them? I am baffled! Thanks for your help and the wonderful free time game.

I needed a new game to reteach time to some of my 2nd graders, so Time Flies came at just the right time!
