REWIND!- 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!
I also have time math workstations that were recently revised with all new fonts and graphics AND all activities have been CCSS connected. I'm pretty proud of these gems!
