### LESSON INSTRUCTION

###### INTRODUCTION

- Begin by explaining to the students that being able to read and write time using an analog clock is an important skill in everyday life.
- Show examples of analog clocks, such as a clock with traditional hour and minute hands.
- Highlight the difference between the hour and minute hands and explain that the minute hand moves in five-minute intervals around the clock face.

###### INSTRUCTION

- Demonstrate how to read and interpret time using an analog clock at five-minute intervals.
- Show examples of different times on an analog clock and ask students to identify the time.
- Demonstrate how to write the time that an analog clock displays at five-minute intervals.
- Show examples of different times on an analog clock and ask students to write the corresponding time.

###### GUIDED PRACTICE

- Distribute clock face templates with movable hands.
- Ask students to set their clocks to various times at five-minute intervals as you say them out loud.
- Have students write the corresponding time for each clock on a sheet of paper.

###### INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

- Distribute a worksheet with different times shown on an analog clock.
- Have students write the correct time for each clock at five-minute intervals.
- Provide individual support and guidance as needed.
- At this stage, students may need reminders on how to read the clocks, so allowing paired work may be an appropriate scaffolding method.

###### HOMEWORK

- Assign students to practice reading and writing time using analog clocks at home and record it in their journals.
- Encourage them to use five-minute intervals to reinforce their learning.

###### EXIT TICKET

- Provide each student with an exit card that contains several analog clock times at five-minute intervals.
- Instruct students to write the corresponding time for each clock.
- Collect the exit cards to quickly assess students' understanding of the concept.

###### ASSESSMENT

- Provide each student with an assessment sheet that contains several analog clock times at five-minute intervals.
- Instruct students to write the corresponding time for each clock and explain their thought process.
- Collect the assessment sheets to evaluate students' understanding of the concept.
- This skill mastery is level is measured by 8/10 questions.

###### CLOSURE

- Review the main concepts covered in the lesson, such as the hour and minute hand and reading time at five-minute intervals.
- Emphasize the importance of being able to read and write time using an analog clock at five-minute intervals.
- Encourage students to share their thoughts about the lesson and any challenges they faced.

###### EXTENSION

- Provide students with time-related word problems involving five-minute intervals and ask them to solve these problems using analog clocks.
- In pairs, have students create their own time-related word problems that involve specific times and durations and then exchange them with their partner to solve.
- Using analog clocks, introduce the concept of elapsed time by having students calculate the duration of events or activities, such as a basketball game or a birthday party. Then, have them practice finding the difference between two times to determine the elapsed time.

###### INTERVENTION

- For students who struggle with fine motor skills, provide larger clock face templates and clock hands for them to use during guided and independent practice.
- For students needing extra support, provide additional practice problems that gradually increase in difficulty to help build their skills. Offer one-on-one guidance during independent practice to address individual needs.
- For visual learners, utilize visual aids, such as pictures or diagrams, to help them understand the concepts. Provide visual examples of time-related word problems to support their learning.

###### VIDEOS

No Video Available

### TEACHING TIPS

- Use real-life examples of telling time.
- Provide plenty of hands-on practice with analog clocks.
- Reinforce the concept of 5-minute intervals throughout the lesson.

### STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS

- Thinking that the hour hand shows the minutes.
- Misunderstanding the difference between digital and analog clocks.
- Struggling to count by 5s to determine the minutes.

### STANDARD

##### Common Core Standard:

2.MD.C.7 - Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.
