Linear Measurement of Time Activities with Free Printables

It has been so much fun watching the kiddos develop an understanding of time.  I can remember just a couple of years ago, when they didn't get it at all.  Now, they're well on their way to mastering it!

This week we're working on refining skills, as we develop an even deeper understanding of linear measurement of time.  We hope you enjoy these activities and free printables.
Linear Measurement of Time Activities
Here's what we've been working on!

Telling Time to the Minute
Telling time to the minute
The kiddos have done very well telling time down to the five minute mark, but have struggled when it comes to being more precise.  In this activity they're practicing time down to the minute, using the cards and clock provided.

They select a card and then move the clock hands to match the time.

Bulldozer and Princess love numbers.  You can hear them arguing about numbers on a regular basis. At times these heated discussions have to do with numbers related to time.  This activity is designed for them and hopefully will elminate further quarrels.

The kiddos will match up the number to the correct phrase.  A control is provided in case they need it.

Days of the Week
Days of the week
The kiddos know the days of the week, but still struggle spelling them at times.  Since we've been working on roots and affixes, I decided to break down the days of the week in those terms to help with spelling. I aslo included the "why" behind the name on each  card, which they've absolutely loved.

In this activity the kiddos will match prefixes and root words to create the days of the week.  They will sequence them in order, and then practice writing them on the paper provided.

Creating a Calendar
Creating  a calendar activity
To further the kiddos' undertanding of time, we decided to create calendars for the next three months.  I provided a control calendar that listed numbers in the correct places, all important dates, holidays etc.  It also provided the spelling of each month and days of the week. 

I was worried that the kiddos would find this activity a little difficult.  It turns out they absolutely love it.  Some are drawing pictures for each special date, instead of writing out the name of the event.  The calendars are quite beautiful.

Through these activities the kiddos are doing such a fabulous job refining their skills related to linear measurement of time.  We have had so much fun.  The best part is that they now have calendars of their own to help them through the holiday season with specific dates, so they know what to expect.
