I cringe when I have to miss CALENDAR TIME. I LOVE calendar time. You know all those math concepts that kiddos just have to memorize? I present them early on in the year and we use songs, chants, rhymes, and movement to practice them EVERY DAY. Pretty soon it's automatic for my kiddos and we all feel SO SMART!!!
teaching time... hula hoop
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.
