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

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of telling and writing time to the nearest five minutes to a situation. Students are asked to draw the times for a typical second grade classroom schedule, put the subjects in order, and identify A.M. and P.M.

Key Concept students will use:

• We can use skip counting by fives and tens to tell and write time on both analog and digital clocks.

Skills students will use:

• Relating skip counting to time
• Counting to 100 by ones and tens (K.CC.A.1)
• Telling and writing time to the nearest hour (1.MD.B.3)
• Telling and writing time to the nearest half hour (1.MD.B.3)

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 6 (Attend to precision) as they communicate their understanding by using appropriate vocabulary terms such as specifying A.M. and P.M. Digital clocks will be used, as well as activities related to events that happen in the A.M. and events that happen in the P.M.

Key vocabulary:

• A.M.
• analog clock
• digital clock
• P.M.
• skip counting

Special materials needed:

• classrooms schedule cards for each student (provided)
• small geared clocks
