There are many themes that you cover in school and telling time is one that you start to review for some kids as you head back to school. I love apples I thought it would be fun to add in some telling time matching apples.
I have been using a lot of matching cards lately and they are fun because there are so many ways you can use them.
This is a fun new addition to the apple printables on the site. I love adding new things we can use during the seasons.
There are two types of cards. You have a red apple with a clock with the hour show on a clock face. The second apple card is green and shows digital time.
How you can use the Apple Time Matching Cards
One of the best ways is matching. You can have cards on both sides to match or you can do like it is laid out below. You can have one set of cards laid out and another pile to match on the top of the cards. It is simple and easy to set up. This also works great in a pocket chart on the wall or on a table.
One way to use the cards is to use the digital apples for kids to make the hour and minute hands on the time help mat. This is a simple way to make these hands-on for those that need that style of learning.
If you have space make a clock on the floor. I had her start out with the digital clock and point out where it would be on the clock. It was fun to watch her match the time to the correct area. This also helps them see that it goes around in a circle.
If they have made the clock they can then match the apples with the clock hands on them. This helps them have another way to reinforce what they are learning.
I always love sorting the matching cards on rings. It makes it easy to store and fun for kids to flip through and match the cards. It turns it into a game you can play in a center.
