I have been so busy the past month that I have neglected my blog. I posted a new product a couple of weeks ago that I am really excited to tell you about! I had several teachers whose students were struggling with time to 5 minute intervals, so I really gave some hard thought to ways you could make time interesting and fun at the same time. I thought of all the different games I could create, and I had an inspiration while trying to think of sayings that had to do with time.

coverI thought about that rock and roll oldie Rock Around the Clock and I had the idea to make a record into a clock with guitars for the hour and minute hands and small clocks going around the record where the numbers would be. That was the birth of my game It’s Time to Rock Around the Clock! Rock Around the Clock is a set of 3 games to be used with the whole class or small groups in centers to help students tell time to 5 minute intervals and to tell starting or ending times when given the elapsed time. These games align with the Common Core Standards CC.2MD.7 and CC.3MD.1. so it’s perfect for second and third grade.

The kiddos have had a blast with these games! We even played the song Rock Around the Clock while the kids were playing the game. Played like Bingo, the students use individual Rock Around the Clock cards and markers to mark times shown on their Rock Around the Clock cards as they are called out. The times are in the corresponding area on the board, so the kids don’t have to look all over their boards. For example, if 2:15 is called out, students look at the clock at the 2:00 position to see if it matches. There are 4 different times for each hour for a total of 48 so the game doesn’t take too long to play. When a student has a marker on all 12 clocks on his/her board, he/she calls out Rock Around the Clock! It has been a real fun game and the kids love playing it during center time.

Each of the 30 individual Rock Around the Clock cards has a different combination of clocks so no two are alike. Also, there is a color and a black and white version of each Rock Around the Clock card because I know how expensive that colored ink gets! Here are the three games you can play using the game boards:

Game 1: students place markers on the board to match the times called out. – includes directions for playing with the whole group or with small groups in a center
Game 2: students place markers on the board to match the time clue cards. – includes directions for playing with the whole group or with small groups in a center
Game 3: students place markers on the board to match the starting or ending time when given the elapsed time. – includes directions for playing with the whole group or with small groups in a center preview for rock around the clockpreview final tptOne of the things I really love about this game is that it can be played with both the whole class or with small groups in a center. Because there are three different variations of the game – i.e. digital calling cards, verbal clues calling cards, and elapsed time problem calling cards, you are able to differentiate according to the needs of the students in your class.
This product includes:
30 individual Rock Around the Clock Cards – color and b/w versions to save ink!
Rock Around the Clock master board to keep up with times called
Rock Around the Clock time cards to choose from when calling out times
Answer key for each Rock Around the Clock card
48 digital clock cards to play the game in small groups – students draw a card and place the marker on the corresponding analog clock on their board. The first player to fill up their card wins.
48 time clue cards – students draw a card, read the clue, and place the marker on the corresponding clock on their board.
48 elapsed time cards – students draw a card read the clues, and cover the clock which shows the starting or ending time when given the elapsed time.
