“And oooooh there’s something ’bout the way
Your sun shines on my face
It’s a love so true, I could never get enough of You
This feeling can’t be wrong
I’m about to get my worship on, take me away
It’s a beautiful day.”

Once Upon a Time… Fairy Tale Themed Time Telling Packets

I recently created two time telling units; one targeting telling time to the nearest half hour and hour, and one telling time to the nearerst 5 minute interval using AM and PM.

This “Once Upon A Time” packet has a fairy tale theme with castles, magic wands and frogs. It is aligned with the second grade common core standard for telling time to the nearest 5 minute using AM and PM.  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my TpT store!

There are 10 worksheets where students draw the hands on the clock to match the digital time given. You can use the worksheets for practice or assessments. There is a full page analog clock template with hour and minute hands to attach. You’ll need a brad fastener to attach the hands on the clock. You can laminate it and use the clock to practice telling time with students or to play the telling time “Around the World” game in your classroom. You can also distribute the clock templates to each student for them to assemble and use on their own. Additionally, there is a “Once Upon A Time” Bingo template. Students cut out the 24 clocks and glue them in any order on their bingo boards. Then you can reinforce time telling by playing bingo with your students. There is a call list included for the teacher to use.

I will be using these activities for small group intervention for special education and RTI. Time telling is a pretty nice life skill to have. 😉

I hope you love these units!  If you do, please rate me and follow me.  I really appreciate it.  

Thank you so much.

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil?  I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.  He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

(Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11)
