Lizzie - I loved creating the hula hoop clock because it made it easier for me to count in 5’s. It was difficult knowing the hours and half hours but I am better at it now.
Riley - I was so happy learning about time because it was fun to make the clocks and amazing to use our strategies to problem solve the snail and worm activities by using time.
Kevin - I learned that the large hand on a clock was for minutes and the small hand was for hours. I enjoyed making the clocks because the hands could be moved to tell the time.
