{Not Your Average Paper Clock craft} "Lets face it: Learning how to tell time is tough. There are just so many rules to memorize. The hour hand is short. The minute hand counts by fives. The hour hand speaks first. Oy vey! My mind spins just thinking about it. As a primary school teacher, I used all kinds of different clocks to teach these rules and, without question, this homemade variety was my all time favorite because it brought all of those complicated rules together in one spot." *Cool

What a great idea for students to learn the class' schedule and tell time! This clever teacher made the words pop using CTP's 4" Sprinkle Designer Letters!

Students make a clock with a hula hoop. The numbers are attached to the hoop and students use their arms as the hands. Helps them remember that there are five minutes between each number, like their five fingers.
