Happy Sunday! I know so many of you will be spending your day, your week, the rest of your month getting ready for school (while I also know that my east coast buddies are still enjoying their summer), so I hope that you remember to take a few minutes for yourself. I know how it gets when it is crunch time and the world begins to revolve around school.

Most of you know that my heart belongs to my sweet twin girls (and my husband, of course) so the "Double the Fun" theme of our giveaway is near and dear to my heart. My girls are NOT double trouble... they are double the fun, so I keep hoping that this giveaway is FUN for you and not trouble!

**Don't forget to enter for the TWO $50 TpT Gift Cards, and keep coming back for more...there may be some new limited time freebie(s) coming soon. Just maybe!**

My mini-me! That's me juggling two bottles, task cards, and my iPhone. |

One more note before I get to the good stuff...I am BLOWN AWAY by your amazing ideas in the comments sections of the last 2 posts. Your ideas about Cause & Effect were all wonderful, and I'm hoping to put together a page of all the tips you offered up so that others can access it easily. Keep those great ideas coming!

Okay, okay, enough chitter chatter. It's Day #3 of the giveaway! I posted about Elapsed Time back in October, and even though I know it's a pain in the rear for most teachers to teach (because most students don't get it right away), I never imagined how many people would view that post or re-pin those anchor charts! So, I found it fitting that I give away one of my best selling products and its companion, follow-up product, Elapsed Time Bundle and Elapsed Time Task Cards (I know I have said it about all of my products, but these sets are extensively differentiated). Even if this isn't in your standards, I send it home with students for an "independent study" math project. They HAVE to understand elapsed time by the time they leave us in elementary school!

As always, don't forget to stop by The Science Penguin to see what she is giving away. Have I mentioned that Ari makes me wish I still taught science? That's saying a lot, because I used to dread it...

See you tomorrow!

I use a timer!

ReplyDeleteUsing a T chart or a time line works well.

ReplyDeleteI use a T chart and we often count backwards!

Even my grade 6 students find elapsed hard time difficult. One thing I do stress to these students is that elapsed time is NOT a subtraction question. They need to use context and not just an algorithm!

ReplyDeleteSidney

TeachingisagiftI use a graphic organizer with contains a place for the start time, elapsed time (hour & minutes) and end time. I have students plug in what they know from their problem and work from there. Such a complex concept!

Teaching elapsed time is one thing my students struggle with.. Thanks this will help

ReplyDeleteI use a strategy found on pinterest from The Organized Classroom blog.

ReplyDeleteI teach elapsed time using a t-chart organizer. Students put the start time on the top left and add or subtract time on the right. It works well and students like having the flexibility to use time increments that they are comfortable with - some can use 30 min, but some only add/subtract by 5 min or 10 min at a time.

I like using the T-Chart method when teaching elapsed time. It just seems to make sense like that.

ReplyDeleteThanks for the giveaway!

I stress to the students that they cannot subtract every problem. I try to get them to count by the hours first and then by the minutes. Usually that makes it easier, but they still want to subtract like a regular subtraction problem. :(

ReplyDeleteI will be teaching elapsed time this year to my self-contained classroom. I will be using several strategies including manipulatives and interactive human clocks :)

ReplyDeleteI like to have my 5 grades start out using the Judy clocks. I borrow them from my 1st grade neighbor

ReplyDeleteI have a big clock pocket chart that helps provide a visual on elasped time for my students.

ReplyDeleteWe use clock faces to count on and back - thanks for the opportunity!

ReplyDeleteWe have these cool elapsed time rulers that the students can use.

ReplyDeleteI will be used elapsed time rulers to teach elapsed time.

ReplyDeleteElapsed time is introduced in second grade at my school. We focus on elapsed time in hours by using a Judy clock. I also use interactive web sites.

ReplyDeleteI have always used a "jumping line", I tried the T chart method this year too. I allowed students to choose their strategy.

I use class clocks and different activities during the day to teach elapsed time.

ReplyDeleteThis is awesome because my students always struggle with elapsed time. Thank you!

ReplyDeleteElapsed time is very difficult to teach at my school for sure! Thanks for the chance to win.

ReplyDeleteI like to have the kids make their own clock and then have them use it to figure our the elapsed time.

ReplyDeleteI use a number of different clocks in different sizes. Because I teach special ed I use a ton of visuals so a Time Timer works really well. When the red is gone then their time is up. Time Timers are one of my favorite tools!!

ReplyDeleteI use a number line but I will also be teaching the t-chart model. The students also have access to small Judy Clocks that they can take to their desks!

ReplyDeleteI am Andrea Snow, by the way!! I still have my old e-mail account! (Figured you might need to know that for the giveaway!) I hope I win . . .

I have my students write down the beginning time (for example 4:38) we count by the hour (5:38, 6:38, 7:38) and then we count the minutes. It takes some practice, but they are able to understand this concept.

ReplyDeleteI use the t chart, reminding them to count by hours then by minutes.

ReplyDeleteI use a timer, also!

ReplyDeleteI don't have a favorite tip yet. I am teaching this for the first time this year!!

ReplyDeleteI love to teach elapsed time using the "backwards N" strategy or the "mountains, hills, and rocks" strategy.

ReplyDeleteI use two clocks and a time line.

ReplyDeleteDeb

I love using a timeline to teach elapsed time!!!

ReplyDeleteI am a brand new teacher so this is a new subject for me! Would love to win this pack!

ReplyDeleteI have never heard of this so this would be a new thing for me to teach. I'd love to win!

ReplyDeleteElapsed time is one of the hardest concepts for my third graders to grasp, but thanks to the world of Pinterest I used a number "time" line to teach it last year which was much easier. I noticed that someone has time number line rulers on TpT which I promptly added to my wish list! Thanks so much for your blog, I am really enjoying it.
