My 4th graders. It's maddening. I had a digital clock that I kept by my bathroom sign out sheet, because they can't tell time with an analog clock.
SOmeone broke the digital clock, so they're back to the analog. It takes some of them 5 minutes just figure out what time it is!

Yep - we can teach the lesson in the book, they can pass the test on Friday, but if they don't use it out in their everyday lives, they don't retain it.

Currently teaching this in 2nd grade- it's a struggle every year! They don't ever see analog clocks so they have no background knowledge. Then they never use it so they forget it by the next grade!

I teach telling time and elapsed time at the end of 3rd and it makes me want to shoot myself. I think it's the most painful math concept in 3rd. It's why we wait until the end of the year.

Iím fourth this year and itís about half and half who can tell time. We have chrome books, so when we are not using them and the want to know the time, they peek in to check.
