Over the last couple of weeks Senior Infants and First Class have been working on telling the time. We have been doing lots of hands on activities to help us learn how to tell the time on the hour and half past the hour. We have been reading the time on clocks and moving the clock hands to show different times.
We have also been learning our days of the week and months of the year. We use our calendar everyday to talk about the day, date, month and season. This daily practice helps us to remember what we have learned.
We can practice telling the time and using a calendar at home everyday by reading the clocks at home (e.g. what time I get up, what time I eat breakfast, what time I go to bed) and also by marking off days on a calendar. Here are two songs that we really enjoyed when learning all about time!
