In order to learn about time, the keiki in Mrs. Littrell’s math class did a sorting activity. Each child was given a picture of an activity that would take a second(s), a minute(s), or a hour(s) to do. After thinking about their activity each child placed their picture under the timed category and we checked it together. We also discussed some activities that could take a few seconds and/or a minute to do. Some insisted that we could clap for a minute… so we clapped for one whole minute! After that, the keiki decided to place the clapping picture under “second(s)”.
Since the activity, the keiki have been busy learning how to tell time for top of the hour and half hour. Try asking your child what time it is.
