Boom Learning materials allow you to assemble just right learning bites for a topic, with the ability to remediate or challenge. Are your third and fourth graders at standard for working with time? Is your homeschooler on track and mastering time?
In the United States, third graders in Common Core states are expected to be able to tell and write time to the nearest minute. They are also expected to be able to solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time interval in minutes. In Texas, they are expected to be able to tell and write time to the nearest minute by second grade.
To integrate Boom Cards in your teaching or review of time skills for third graders, we recommend starting with Racing Through Time by Making the Grayd to practice writing hours and minutes.Then have students move to advanced time telling with Time|One Minute Intervals by LittleStreams, which practices minutes before and after. Finally, practice adding and subtracting time to the minute with Elapsed Time by Fishyrobb. Both Elapsed Time and One Minute Intervals work well for interactive whiteboard group work.
By the end of fourth grade, students are expected to be able to work with time using the four operations. To practice these skills we recommend starting with Elapsed Time by Garden Full of Knowledge and then moving on to Speed, Distance, Time Cards by Curriculum for Autism.
If your students are bilingual, older, studying a foreign language or need enrichment, consider assigning a deck about time in Spanish, French or Italian.
