Mentor Text 12.8.13

Good Morning!  We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky.  This week the theme is Math.  We are getting ready to teach our time unit so we picked a favorite time book to share; Hickory Dickory Dock.  This familiar rhyme makes the book a great read aloud for the students. It gives you an opportunity to talk about the clocks on the pages, the time shown on them, and how to tell the time.  The kiddos enjoy the rhyme, illustrations, and seeing what will happen next.  

We have just added a time packet, "Party Time" to our store.  This packet includes five activities that allow you to teach and / or practice telling time to the hour and half hour.  

You can grab this class book  FREEBIE, by clicking here.  This allows your students to make a class book with times throughout the day.  You can have students pair up so that each page represents 1 hour of the day in your classroom (for example "At 8:00 we do our morning work.").

To grab another FREEBIE, like our Facebook book page (you will click the "Fan Freebie" tab).  You will be able to download a Time game called "Find the False," which is one of our kiddo's favorite activities!  

Have a super Sunday!
