Students learn to read analog clocks in April of 2nd grade, elementary school. So, if you time your lessons right, you'll be teaching the topic right after they've learned it in Japanese.
- Tick Tock. Read analog clocks and clap the time.
- Time Guessing Game. Guess what time the ALT put on his clock.
- The Grandfather Clock. ALT acts like a grandfather clock. Students listen for the number of gongs.
- Midnight. Students listen for their number and run around a circle.
- What time is it, Mr. Wolf. Listen for the time and play tag.
- Clock Race. Students lie on the ground to make different times on a clock.
- Writing Race. Call out a time and students quickly write it on the board.
- What time is it? Junior high activity.
- Time is good to mix with other lessons if you have tought anything like: hobbies, vehicles, entertainment, places...
- "What time is it?" can be added to the daily warmup.
