Activity: Time Templates
Several of the master sheets in Section 10 focus on telling time. They can
be photocopied for use with learners. For the sake of those learners having
vision difficulties, the templates can be enlarged.
- Clock Face Worksheet: Twelve blank clock faces are provided.
The clock hands can be drawn, and the time can be written underneath. An
event that occurs at a particular time can be written as well.
- Digital Clock Worksheet: Fifteen digital clock faces
are provided. Segments of the digital number “8” can be darkened
to reveal the desired number. The corresponding time (or event) can also
be written beneath the digital clock face.
- Event Flashcards: Cutting out and pasting the blank clock
faces and the event pictures on either side of blank index or recipe cards
can create twelve flashcards to use with learners. The hands of the clocks
can be filled in, depending on when the learner has lunch, begins work,
goes to bed, etc. The tutor can show the learner the time on the clock face,
and ask what the learner does at that time. Or, the tutor can show the event
picture, and ask the learner when it happens.
- Time Practice Flashcards: Eight flashcards can be created
that will help teach learners how to tell time. On one side are different
times, shown on a clock face that includes numbers for both hours and minutes.
On the other side, the corresponding times are written in numerical form
and in the correct spoken form.
