Elapsed Time Rulers: Great Guided Math Opportunity

Posted on March 8, 2011. Filed under: Elementary math, Graphic Organizers, Guided math, Manipulatives | Tags: , , |

Students struggle with telling elapsed time.  Elapsed time rulers definitely help!  I suggest starting with stories from hour to hour and then scaffolding it by the half hour and then by 15 minutes and then by 1 minute.  So, this site has several different rulers to do that (you have to scroll down to Other and then Look for TIME to find the rulers).  Here is another great elapsed time ruler and lesson.  Here is one more.  Try them and let me know how it works!

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki

Hi Dr. Nicki,
The elapsed time rulers are definitely a great alternative to using the clock for elapsed time. the 3rd graders at my school are really having a hard time, so this post is just what we needed. Have you ever used the Elapsed Time Line which is sold by Learning Resources? It’s a plastic ruler which has color-coded arrows that point to START and END times. It’s something we have used. Both are excellent for a guided math lesson. Thanks.
