In This Unit of Study…

Students will continue to make connections between number lines and clocks to help them learn to read and write time to the nearest 5 minutes.  Using a number line will help students understand that the numerals on clocks are divided into increments of 5 which represent 5 minutes.  Students will also identify activities that occur from midnight to right before noon as A.M. activities and activities that occur from noon to right before midnight as P.M. activities.  They will use both analog and digital clocks to read and write time.

B.E.S.T. Benchmarks:

• MA.2.M.2.1 Using analog and digital clocks, tell and write time to the nearest five minutes using a.m. and p.m. appropriately. Express portions of an hour using the fractional terms half an hour, half past, quarter of an hour, quarter after and quarter til.

Key Concepts:

• I can tell and write time from an analog clock to the nearest five minutes using a.m.

• I can tell and write time from a digital clock to the nearest five minutes using a.m.
• I can tell and write time from a digital clock to the nearest five minutes using p.m.
• I can express portions of an hour using the fractional terms half an hour, half past, quarter of an hour, quarter after, and quarter ‘til.
• I can partition circles to represent fractions for a half hour and a quarter hour.
• I can use number lines to represent a half hour and a quarter hour.
