Guide your students to tell the time on an analog clock with this set of differentiated peg cards.

## 🕰️ Need a Time Telling Activity?

Through this activity, students will practise their time skills by reading the analogue clocks to the hour, half-hour and quarter-hour.

To play, provide students with clothes pegs they’ll use to mark one of three digital times on the bottom of the card that correctly matches the clock face. Answer keys are provided for each differentiation level.

## Scaffolding + Extension Tips

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource for students to work on independently in your maths centre.

We’ve designed this activity with three differentiated versions of cards to accommodate students’ abilities and build up their time-telling skills. Shapes in the top right corner of the cards identify the three versions as follows:

• Circle by the hour
• Triangle by the hour and half hour
• Square by the hour, half-hour and quarter-hour

Support struggling students by starting with the hour cards (circle symbol) only. Gradually add in the half-hour and quarter-hour cards as students get more familiar with the concepts.

Challenge fast finishers who already understand the concept by removing the time options on the bottom. Download the Google Slides version and make a copy before deleting the times on the cards.

Check out these suggestions for using this activity to reinforce your small group and full-class maths lessons, too:

### 🛴 Scoot Activity

Place the cards around the room in numerical order and instruct students to number a sheet of paper as a recording sheet. Assign students in pairs to a starting card. Give students time to review the card and write the correct time on the clock in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, ‘SCOOT!’ Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Use the dropdown icon on the Download button to choose between the PDF or editable Google Slides version of this resource. Answer keys are included.

Print on thick card for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.
