The adjustment to the whole group lesson is a modification to differentiate for children who are English learners.
Call the students together as a group.
Ask the students what item is used to tell time.
Take responses by raised hands.
Inform the students that clocks come in all shapes and sizes.
Inform the students that today they will be using an analog clock, or a clock that has rotating hands.
Point to the clock in the classroom as you say "analog clock." Bring examples of digital clocks and watches.
Ask students to name places other than school where they have seen clocks. List student responses on the board.
Define "rotating hands" as the pointers on a clock that move in a circle. Show students the hands on the classroom clock.
Tell students to share with a partner at what time they do different activities, using the sentence frame, "I ________ at ________." Brainstorm ways to complete the sentence frame using the shared school schedule for context.
