These telling time units target different learning levels, from sequencing daily events to reading a clock in 5-minute increments.


It is specifically developed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This bundle on telling time addresses the characteristics of telling time in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material whether learning about clocks, day vs night or reading the time to the 5 minutes.


There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on telling time. This repetition encourages a true understanding of telling time.


Finally, many of the time activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.


See the preview for a detailed look at the contents.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated into these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, asking students good questions will push them to think more deeply than before.
