Time to 5 minutes (free) may be practiced using this Google Slides activity. Please see my blog post about using Google Slides at school or home at this link. For this slide set, please click here or on the picture below. See the time to 5 minutes Jamboard at this link.

## Interactive Slides

The slides are interactive, such as the slide that asks students to count by 5’s by moving pictures with numbers.

By relating the clock numbers to hands, the students will see they are probably already counting by 5’s. Their previous skip counting experience will help them understand clocks and telling time. So, next they practice moving the hands around the clock.

Next, they try an interactive slide with numbers. Look, mom, no hands!

After practicing counting by 5’s around the clock, students might try this slide of adding times from noon to 1:00 by moving the correct times to the clocks.

## Not All Clocks Are The Same

Students need to be aware that all clocks count the same number of minutes per hour whether or not the clock has numbers on it. And pretty soon they need to learn each mark on the clock or watch means one minute, and to learn to count from 1 to 60 by ones around the clock.

For counting by 1’s around the clock, children can recite numbers 1-60. However, what does that look like in writing? Try this DIY idea. I made a free printable to use with either a dollar store foam clock as pictured, or the blank clock included in the printable. Tedious but after this experience children will have a better understanding of reading time to the minute.
