Telling Time Mega Unit

Telling time is an important Math skill to learn in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Grades. This math unit will give you everything you need to teach this skill! This resource includes:

– 5 Posters
– 84 Student Pages (See detailed description below)
– Answer Keys

In 1st grade, students should be able to tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

In 2nd grade, students should be able to tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.

By the end of 3rd grade, students should be able to tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. They should also be able to add time correctly, for example if given a clock that shows it is 5pm and they are asked to add four hours and 16 minutes, they can do it!

Skills and Concepts

Every Child is Different and Unique: Teaching by Skill and Concept

Every child is different and unique and yet we try to teach them all the same…

Assessment tests only tell you what ‘grade level’ where they should be in a subject but don’t usually tell you the exact skills they have learned or need to learn (skill by skill).

MyTeachingLibrary.com has a fantastic “Skills and Concepts” section on the home page that will help you understand more about what should be taught and learned by grade. It is broken down ‘by grade’ because that is the way our educational system has be set up. However, ‘grade levels’ rarely meet the individual child where he or she is.

If you begin to look at what skills and concepts that should be learned, as a parent, you will be more in control of guiding each of your children) and selecting the appropriate materials for them as they weave in and through their learning.

As an ex-public teacher (turned homeschooling parent), I know that ‘grade levels’ have a purpose in mass teaching…but all students learn differently and at different times. They are all unique. They may be ahead in understanding and mastering multiplication but not fractions…and yet a ‘graded’ curriculum may not meet them where they are. This is true for ALL subjects and all grades!

Get to know the “skills and concepts” your child(ren) should learn @ https://myteachinglibrary.com/ When beginning to use such a list, you can let ‘grade level’ be a starting point to begin assessing your child(ren) with these lists, but don’t fret or worry if they are ‘behind’. Whether you believe they are behind, at ‘grade level’ or ahead, find material that will test if they have developed those specific skills/concepts if you don’t already know they have mastered a skill or concept. With such knowledge, you can help your child(ren) learn…teach by skills and concept, not necessarily by grade level.

Once you begin to think about teaching this way, you will most likely see that ‘graded’ curriculum doesn’t always fit..That is because it is written to be one size fits all. If that is the case, or you just want to teach through the skills and concepts that should be learned and mastered (because that makes the most sense to you), one place to begin finding those materials (all in one place) is https://myteachinglibrary.com/ !

2nd Grade, Math, Math Skills Review

Identifying Even and Odd Numbers takes practice!

For older students and adults, it’s really easy to identify whether a number is even or odd, but for 1st – 3rd graders, it can require practice!

Yes, we can tell students that if a number ‘ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8’ it is an even number. We can also tell them that all other numbers (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9) are odd numbers. We can also display posters to help them such as Math Posters | Even – Odd Numbers but students still require practice!

That’s why My Teaching Library has created….Even and Odd Numbers

This resource will give students the practice they need to identify even and odd numbers! It includes 18 worksheets that progressively include higher numbers to really help students solidify their understanding.

Includes:

  • – 4 worksheets (#’s to 20) w/ pictures: Students are to count and write how many, then create pairs (to determine if the number is even or odd) and then will circle even or odd.
  • – 3 worksheets (#’s to 20) for students to identify odd numbers (given a sets of  6 numbers, they will circle every odd number)
  • – 3 worksheets (#’s to 20) for students to identify even numbers (given a sets of  6 numbers, they will circle every even number)
  • – 2 worksheets (#’s to 20) for students to identify both even and odd numbers (given a sets of  4 numbers, they will circle every even or odd number based on instructions given)
  • – 4 worksheets (#’s to 50) for students to identify both even and odd numbers (given a sets of  4 numbers, they will circle every even or odd number based on instructions given)
  • – 2 worksheets (#’s to 120) for students to identify both even and odd numbers (given a sets of  3 numbers, they will circle every even or odd number based on instructions given)
  • – Answer Keys

Although 2nd grade skills require that students can identify even and odd numbers through 20, it is easy for them to go beyond twenty using this resource and the concepts they learn! Perfect to pair with Math Posters | Even – Odd Numbers

Homeschool

Stop Wasting Money on Curriculum that Doesn’t Fit.

Is this you?

So often I have read comments on other sites and social media that read something like this…

I bought this program (curriculum) but it’s not a good fit for my child

or this…

I just received the curriculum I purchased and it doesn’t cover everything I thought it did!

Can you related to any of the above statements? Have you purchased a curriculum or program that is not for your child? What are some of the reasons that this happens? Here are some possibilities…

  • Your child isn’t quite ready
  • Your child has already learned what is being taught and needs something more
  • Your child’s learning style just doesn’t match the curriculum
  • Your child simply needs to learn more that the curriculum covers

I homeschooled my son from PreK-12th grade and I can’t tell you how much money I spent on curriculum that he hated or just didn’t fit. That’s why I created My Teaching Library!

My Teaching Library offers thousands of teaching resources from typical curriculum and worksheets to hands-on, interactive unit studies AND why I offer subscription plans that gives you ALL-ACCESS to everything! If you download something and it isn’t a good fit, chances are good that you can find something else that is a good fit for your child! I’m also continually adding new resources so that you have even more to select from when trying to find what works for your child.

An annual ALL-ACCESS subscription is only $60 (which equates to only $5 a month) and that is for ALL SUBJECTS! Now, tell me…Have you spent $60 on one curriculum or program that covers just one subject and it was not for your child?

I also offer a lifetime ALL-ACCESS subscription which over the course of several years can save you even more money!

What My Teaching Library is not

Now, I want to touch on one last concern I see so many parents have. I see so many (especially new homeschooling parents) say…

I need a day by day, step by step program!

I’m scared I’ll not teach my child what he needs to know!

Why I don’t like step by step, day by day programs/curriculum:
Step by step, day by day programs become rigid and doesn’t leave room for you, the parent, to do what your gut tells you your child needs.

No one, not even curriculum developers know your child like YOU DO!

So, what do you do? How do you know what skills and concepts your child should cover for each grade? How can you judge ‘where’ your child is in terms of what is being taught in specific grades?

My Teaching Library offers a ‘Skills and Concepts’ section on our home page for every grade!

Use our ‘Skills and Concepts’ to guide you as you find what works best for your child. Let it help you stop saying “not for my child” but rather “This is the next thing I should help my child learn” and then find the resources you need to teach it!

Also, if you ever can’t find what you are looking for on My Teaching Library, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask! If MTL has it, I’ll send you to those resources. If MTL doesn’t have it, I will put that on my list of things to add to our library!
