Speaking of time, I feel like the day has flown by as did our weekend! We enjoyed visiting family and meeting our beautiful niece Cady this weekend, but now it's Monday and it's back to reality.

This week we decided to talk about time. More than likely you have to cover time this year to some extent. Especially if you are in Georgia (or use Common Core). For instance, my EIP math kids are almost all working on time. My first graders are learning to read and tell time to the hour and to the half-hour on analog and digital clocks. My second graders are learning to tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m. Then my third graders are learning to tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. They are also learning to solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes.

What grade level do you teach and where? Are you covering time this year? How are you helping your students learn this concept?
