I already know that I would be using my Winter Word Study Unit during January - I am starting on the first Monday back with the compound word activities - we will need to move around!
Since we will need to move around a lot and have probably forgotten what we knew about telling time - due to present and sugar overload - I made some clocks to use as a whole class activity to practice telling time to the nearest 5 minute mark. I will be placing the analogue and digital clocks around the room, students will have to find the analogue clock - record the time, then find the matching digital clock and record the letter (to spell a word and the first one is a compound word - snowball - which will lead into our word study, yeah!). This should get some of our energy out so that the Grade 4`s can move on to the text book and work on telling time to the nearest minute and the Grade 3`s can continue with time to the nearest 5 minute mark. On Wednesday we will move on to the dreaded ELAPSED time and will use the clocks to walk around the class some more!
I posted the snowflake clocks on my TPT store if you are interested - they are free!
