This resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils working on recognising/learning digital/analogue time. It is based on reinforcing the concept of all of the minutes on the clock. There is an individual minute from each hour of the clock in the pack.
The pack is made up of three sets of 12 cards where an analogue clock is shown and pupils have to match the digital time to the analogue clock. The first set has the digital time in 3/4 digits; the second set has 24 hour time (am) and the third set has 24 hour time (pm). The teacher can choose which set the pupil should work on.
Cut up the sheets into three sets of 12 separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should read the time on the analogue clock on the left side of each card and place a peg on the correct equivalent digital time on the right side of the card from the three choices given.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can read the time. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of the concept of matching digital/analogue time. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
This activity could be used as part of Station Teaching where each pupil in the group has a set of the clocks to match with pegs.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
