I know, I know..... Telling time isn't a common core standard for kindergarten! BUT when you think about it, looking at clocks IS another way to practice number recognition. We learned the words "analog" and "digital" and looked at big numbers and small numbers and noticed that one hand on the analog clock was big and the other hand was little. We matched number to number which was one-to-one correspondence. So we really did study numbers in this math center! :)
Here are a few pictures of what the kids did. One activity was making a ladybug clock (after reading Eric Carle's The Grouchy Ladybug, of course! The other was matching digital times on flowers with the analog hands on a flowerpot clock. Spring ideas, for sure, but doesn't wishful thinking make it happen??
