FUN FRIDAY: Time in bloom

April 6, 2012

Spring is in the air, and here’s a wonderful visual support idea from I Do, We Do, You Do for those students who are just learning to tell time or are having a hard time figuring out that pesky minute hand.

This is a version of a visual we featured in From Tutor Scripts to Talking Sticks (although this one is much prettier than the one we showed) . We call this type of technique “math in sight” as it helps students see something that may be hard to see or detect. Other “math in sight” ideas include putting down duct tape to show the differences between a yard and a meter or filling containers with different amounts of paper clips or toothpicks to show the difference between 100 and 1,000 (or any amount).

      Your website is fantastic! And the clock is the cutest I have ever seen- you are obviously a great teacher…but an artist too!
      Thanks for checking in– Paula
