Lesson Plan : Meeting Up With Time

 Teacher Name: Maggie Batacan Grade: Kindergarten Subject: Math

 Topic: Telling 24 Hour Time Content: Time Interval/Gap Event Clock Goals: At the end of the lesson, the student(s) should: understand the definition of time; have an appreciation for time; and understand how a clock works. For students to read 24 hour time. Objectives: The student(s) will be able to: define what time is; tell time; appreciate time and learn to make the most of it. Students will attempt to read 24 hour time. Students will recognize elapsed time. Materials: A working clock without batteries, (optional) a stick/something to point with, Worksheets, Clocks, Pencils Introduction: They will be asked to explain how they know when to wake up in the morning. This will lead to a series of questions for them to answer. Simultaneously, it will be hinted that the topic of discussion is time. This will open up the topic of time naturally. Development: There will be a discussion on what time is and its importance. The room will be open to questions. 24 hour time is used everyday. Does anyone know what it is? Where have you seen it? There are 24 hours in a day and often, people use 24 hour time so that they do not have to say am or pm and they will automatically be able to recognize that it is night of day. Practice: A series of games will be played to show them the meaning of time and to help them learn to tell time, and learn how a clock works. The class will be separated into two teams, who will be competing for who can stay silent for the longest time. When the game is finished, it will be explained to them, why the group that won won. This will show them the meaning of time. Using the clock with no batteries, they will be asked to identify the time that is shown on the face. This will help them learn how to tell time. (Optional) Each student will be assigned a number from 1-12, and will be arranged the way the numbers are arranged on a regular clock. When pointed at, they will be asked to say their assigned number. This will help them understand how a clock works. Accommodations: Helpers and teacher will be available for independent activities. Checking For Understanding: The questions asked in the beginning will be reiterated. They will be asked to explain their answers, and explain the importance of knowing time. Closure: Everything that was discussed will be reviewed. All questions for clarification will be welcome. Students will have quick game. Evaluation: Evaluation of the students' capability to understand will be done during the discussion itself. Teacher Reflections: Understand that, sometimes, time is taken for granted, especially when you're young and it seems as though you have all the time in the world. How effective was my preparation?
