Time Game Freebie

Before I tell about this game, I have to say that I saw a picture of a similar game on someone else's blog... but I don't remember who! So, if that person happens to see this, please let me know so I can give you credit for inspiring me!

So... I saw these foam shapes at Target and they were only $1.00 so naturally I bought several sets of the squares and the random shapes just hoping that I might find some way to use them!

And I was inspired by someone else's time telling game to create my own and I thought I'd share it with you! Tomorrow it will get laminated and then tucked inside my "Time Telling" workstation tub.


You can go out and get yourself some of these great shapes at Target or make cards that have the times printed on them.

To make this game, you'll need to print out two game boards and then write the 12 different times two times each on the foam shapes or your own cards (so you'll have 2 sets of 12 times for a total of 24 digital times) AND you need to write "Time is Up!" on 5 shapes/cards.

Students work in pairs to play and one partner pulls out a digital time and places it on the matching clock on their board. If they have already covered that time up, they must return the digital time and their turn is over. If they get a "Time is Up!" they have to return one of the times that they already matched!

The winner is the one who fills their card with matched times first.

If you download it, please leave me some love in the comments! I do love them so! :)


I've recently added a fun way to practice time to my TpT store... a classroom or hallway hunt for students to tell time to the hour and half hour OR this one to tell time to five minutes!  So fun!

  2. Thanks for the great game. I purchased some of those shapes weeks ago with nothing in particular in mind (just not being able to pass them up) and this is a perfect game for them. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. What an awesome game! I need to hit up the dollar spot for some of the foam shapes. My kiddos will love this game during math stations!

  4. Yay thanks! It was nice of you to make a game that we only need $1 supplies for! I just found out that I am experiencing a manipulative issue in my new classroom... so $1 manipulatives are right up my alley. :)

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  5. This is a great activity...I can't wait to grab my supplies. I also saw awhile back an I Spy time game where you put clocks up and labeled the time. The kiddos went around the room and spied the time. Too cute!

  7. Thanks so much for sharing! I saw those shapes and had to resist getting them since my co-teachers tell me I have too many things and I'm trying to be good about getting MORE stuff! :) However now I can justify why I need those foam shapes!! :) Thanks for sharing your hard work!

  40. Awesome game! You asked for ideas and i have one. What about the same game idea but instead of time mixed coins and on the shape the value, so they have to match the coins to their amount. Thanks for sharing!

  55. I was looking for review of telling time during stations with my 7th grade French students. I used your board and wrote the times in French on thick old poker chips, so they fit perfectly over the clocks. I also made things trickier with two "Return One" chips, two "Return Two" chips and one "Clear Your Board" chip!

  61. I'm having trouble downloading the "Time is Up' game board. Is there any way you can email it to me? I would really like to use it as a center when I introduce time to my first graders…especially after reading all the great comments on your blog!
