Time and SEN
Great resource that I have used with students with special needs. resources are very colourful and clear. We have used the activities to play a pairs game and used it for looking at what time of the day does this happen. The train timetables have been great for learners to work out time which helps them transfer this to real life situations. Some of it too tricky for my learners - what time is it in 8 minutes time but easy to adapt and use the idea.
Maths time resources
This is a great resource. It includes real world problem solving activities. Resources are suitable across key stage 1 and 2. There are a lot of good resources for display and providing children with reminders. Mark was kind enough to adapt one of the resources for me to use.Thanks very much!
Telling the time
Teaching children how to tell time has a reputation for being a challenging endeavour. While not the easiest lesson to impart, it can also be endlessly rewarding, as time-telling skills can significantly increase a child's cognitive abilities. Thankfully, using your pack, which was fun, colourful and resourceful made guiding my youngest child towards time-telling mastery. It has made it alot easier by simply appealing to his innate creativity and interests. By incorporating this superb teaching pack aswell as my own resources which I taught my other three with, telling the time concepts were quickly grasped and understood. Learning about time can be easy and fun especially with excellent resources such as these to which I am very grateful to use.
Telling the Time
Excellent resource to use in my P6 classroom...great printable reminders on the basics of time both analogue and digital. Saved me a great deal of time creating my own. Thanks
Telling The Time Pack
A comprehensive set of resources for telling the time, right the way through KS2! These resources have saved me hours of planning time and some of the worksheets provide really simple but effective pre and post learning exercises. Thank you Teaching Packs (and Mark, who has been very helpful in the 'chat')
Telling the Time
A comprehensive resource, that is clearly designed. Great variety of resources that are ready to utilize. Thank You for your hard work.
Telling the Time Pack
I just want to say what a useful and time saving pack this is.
As we now know the differentiated child top/bottoms all have to shuffle along with the same directed topic each day. This pack allows you to do this. Just the choice of analogue clock worksheets allows you to specifically target: tables/individuals/middles/not so sures/ haven't got a clue, groups.
So if your learning question (intention or objective) is, 'Can I read an analogue clock?', this pack has it covered. All singing the same tune but everyone has their own little harmony to bring - and no dischords to strain the ears of OFSTED or the Learning Walk patrol.
Time Saving - Easy to Use - Children loved the challenge
Teaching year 2 children (or any year group)to tell the time has already been really challenging. This pack has really helped, the guide cards (as with all packs) are invaluable for key information put in a child friendly and visually stimulating way. Teaching the children which is the hour hand and which is the minute hand is easy using the top tip given in the pack. Teaching time this year is not as scary as it usually is!
Brilliant resources, games and activities included in this pack. My class love the poster with the handy tip to tell the difference between the hour and minute hand!
This is a fantastic resource, time is always difficult to teach, but the comprehensive worksheets and posters in this pack were really helpful. I used the posters for a display and I sent the to and past poster to help the children at home.
