Make telling time easy and pretty with this sunny clock.
The five-minute markers on the sunflower clock help students recognize (and say out loud) the time on a clock.
Students will easily see how each hour on a clock can be divided into five-minute increments using the minute markers.
Supplies Used: Clock (13 3/4" diameter), Construction paper, Glue stick, Hole punch 1/4" (optional), Mounting putty, Sticky note (optional), Stickers (letters), Tweezers (optional)
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
- Die-cut 12 Circle 4" shapes from construction paper. These will be the time markers indicating every five minutes in an hour.
- Die-cut from construction paper eight 0s and eight 5s, two 4s, two 2s, two 3s and two 1s from the Boss-O! 1 1/2" Lowercase Alphabet.
- Colons for time markers can be die-cut from the bottom circle of the 8 in the Boss-O! Alphabet, or a 1/4" hole punch can be used.
- When placing glue on the small shapes, use the adhesive part of a sticky note to hold the parts. Tweezers may be used to pick up the small shapes.
- Make one Circle for every five-minute time marker by adhering the colon and numbers to a Circle (Main Photo).
- Cut by hand a stem and two leaves (one smaller leaf and one larger leaf).
- Adhere the stickers to the smaller leaf to indicate the hour hand, and adhere stickers to the larger leaf to indicate the minute hand (Main Photo).
- Place the completed time markers on the wall around the clock using mounting putty (Main Photo).
- Now telling time is easy!
