This book teaches time, money, and measurement via images, stories, hands-on activities, and patterns, which engage and target the child’s natural learning strengths. K-3.
This book is divided into three parts:
Part I, Time, covers everything from introducing the hands on a clock, Ollie Hour, Molly Minute, and Sammy Second, to future and elapsed time, to estimating time.
Part II, Money, starts with introducing the different denominations of money and ends with adding money and making change.
Part III, Measurement, focuses on measurement of temperature, length, perimeter, area, weight, and volume.
Each section contains its own resources for practicing skills taught in the book, as well as an answer key.
You may approach this book in several ways, depending on your particular needs, the level and ages of the children you are teaching, and your time constraints. There are three sections for Time, Money, and Measurement. The material presented in each section begins at the very beginning and increases in difficulty. Simply go as far as your student(s) can go in each section.
This book is for children who are strongly visual, who learn all at once through pictures, are drawn to patterns, rely on body motions, and who need to understand the process behind each math problem they solve. Child1st teaching and learning resources all follow the principle of conveying learning pieces using a variety of right-brain-friendly elements. We take learning tidbits that utilize symbols (numbers and letters) and abstractions, which are left-brained, and embed them in right-brained elements to beautifully integrate the left and right hemispheres in the brain.
