Background information: in math we are learning to tell time to the hour. We have not even touched half hours much less "quarter afters".
This afternoon, the children were supposed to be working on gift books for Mother's Day. The children write and draw things that their moms cook, like, etc.
My student brought one of the plastic clocks up to me with the hands on 3:15. He asked me if that is what time we go home from school at. I was impressed that he knew this and told him so. I bit my tongue and didn't point out that he was not doing what he was supposed to be doing. Thank goodness I didn't say it. His next words were priceless. "Good...'Cuz that's what my mom likes."
How absolutely wonderful that he feels that way. Wow.
I have updated that printable if you would like to do it with your class in the next couple of days.
The photo above was taken a couple of years ago when I taught Pre-K. This year, my students did more writing. We did the same cute fingerprint heart though.
