Students have completed their measurement tests. On the test there was a possible 9 marks associated with time. I have had my students anaylsis what each one got out of 10. From there we set goals. Over the next two weeks I plan to teach time. As I need to focus on my modeling of measurement, I have started with my students making clocks. Once we discussed what the scale means we made different times on our clock faces. I then introduced them to am and pm as well as writing 24 hour time on their clock face.
Other modelling options that I am looking at is having my students who are masters at time teaching with pairs of students to support them. While I work with a group. I have located some mimio tools to help model time with the clock and also looked at games to reinforce time.
So where to from here?
I am going to use a modelling book when working with the group. My goal is to spend 5 minutes on the concept then allow students who are confident to move on on their own. After this point I am going to work with the group together and slowly send students off. I am focusing modelling to students and questioning their knowledge.
