Lesson objective: Skip count by fives and tens to support telling and writing time to the nearest five minutes.

This lesson helps to build procedural skills with telling time to the nearest five minutes. Analog and digital clocks are used here to support the skill of telling time. This work develops students' understanding that skip counting by fives and tens can be used to tell and write time on both analog and digital clocks.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 6 (Attend to precision) as they precisely communicate their understanding by using appropriate vocabulary terms, such as specifying A.M. and P.M. Images of digital clocks will be used as a tool for understanding.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 7 (Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning) as they notice the patterns in the numbers when skip counting and apply this understanding to telling time to the nearest five minutes. Images of analog clocks will be used as a tool for understanding.

Key vocabulary:

• analog
• digital
• hour hand
• interval
• minute hand

Special materials needed:

• Numerals 1-12 on 5 X 7 index cards, one numeral per card

• Numerals 5, 10, 15, 20, 25… 60 on 3 X 5 index cards, with the numerals in a different color

• "What TIme is it, Mr. Crocodile?" (Judy Sierra) Picture book (optional)

• 5 X 7 green card

• 5 X 7 red card
