Paper Plate Clock-revamped!!!


Hello bloggy friends!
Please head over to my NEW blog and follow me over there.  This blog will no longer be updated or checked for comments!

So, we are getting ready to start out “Telling Time” unit in Math.  A while ago, I was browsing my favorite blogs and teacher websites and came across a paper plate clock that Mrs. Madden had her students create.  I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the idea of having the flap for them to look under to see the minutes!  So, I told myself that I wanted my students to create one of those as well. 

My team teachers and I were talking about making these at our plan session and wanted to make these a little less prep for us teachers, so I was messing around on my computer and designed the following document to match Mrs. Madden’s wonderful idea, but be less prep work for us.  I hope you like them!


By the way, my daughter made a sample clock (so I could see if my dimensions were correct in my document,) so I just had her use a marker to color in her numbers and hands.  Take a peek:

  9. Is there anyway that dots (minutes) can be put in between the numbers on the top part and the actual minute # in between the numbers on the bottom part? My first grader is telling time to the minutes right now and this would be fun to use during a game we play...but we need minutes because she's past learning to the 5 minutes. I know I can always write them in, but it would be so much cuter already typed on there. Thanks!

  13. I meant to tell you that I printed this out and used it with my summer school class! When I told them we were making clocks they all collectively groaned {how annoying!} but when I showed them what the clock looked like they were SO excited!! Thanks for your awesome idea :)

  19. I'd love to use this but the download info in missing, any way you can repost?

  20. I love it! I want to use this with my third graders who are still struggling. We are working on elapsed time, but if they cannot read the time they cannot be successful with the grade level expectations!
    I am having the same problem - the download is showing up as an IE error. Can you please re-post?

    Thank you!!
