First graders in Ms. Borres’ class at Highland Spring Elementary have been learning how to tell time. Today we did a mini app smash using the apps Schoolkit Math and YakIt Kids.
Students used the clock tool in Schoolkit Math to make a clock state a certain time to the closest hour. Children who needed an extra “boost” were asked to make their time to the half hour. Students at this age easily get the hands of the clock mixed up. Therefore, we used the highlighting tool to color code the hands of the clock and made a key. (Ex. pink=H (hour), blue=M(minute)). Then they used the pencil tool to write the time. We took a screenshot and then imported their creation into YakIt to come alive and talk.
