  • Thank you! This was a great no prep lesson plan to add a time lesson in to Unit 3. I added a numbers discussion which supported Nous Sommes Unit 3 perfectly.

  • This is a great resource to reinforce telling time. We have been working on orally discussing the time of certain classes in their schedules. This was a great tie in to that topic. Students were easily able to understand the story.

  • A perfect resource to introduce telling time to my novice learners ! I loved the CI approach to what can generally be a tricky concept for learners to understand.
