### Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour

There’s so much to learn in telling time! Mastering this clock reading skill requires a lot of practice and motivation. The common core curriculum introduces telling time in Grade 1, but many schools gives an early start from kindergarten itself.

Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

Before teaching kids how to read a clock, have them get familiarized with the types of clocks (Digital and Analog Clock) and the parts of an Analog clock. You may use telling time posters and a hands-on activity like one included in my Telling Time pack.

### Money

Kids are always fascinated by coins! They acquire a basic understanding of money before being exposed to it in Kindergarten or Grade 1. This is a valuable life skill and contribute towards a future financial success.

Kids enjoy learning about money and are always motivated. Typically, the topic starts with identifying coins and gradually moves over to counting money.

My money packet focuses on:
1. Learning different types of coins, one at a time.
2. Identifying the Names and Value of Coins (Penny, Nickel, Dime and Quarter).
3. Count and find the value of same type of coins (Skip Count).
4. Sorting of coins based on their value.
5. Count and find the value of diverse set of coins.

You can buy this Money Packet from HERE.

As a prerequisite, the money topic requires a good knowledge of number sense.

#### Money Song and Rhyme

This is one of my favorite rhyme to go with Money unit.

Penny, penny, easily spent –
Copper brown and worth one cent.

Nickel, Nickel, thick and fat.
It’s worth 5 cents – I know that.

Dime, dime, little and thin.
I remember – you’re worth 10.

Quarter, quarter, big and bold.
It’s worth 25 – I am told!
