What Time is it Mr. Crocodile?
The Clock Struck One
Katie and Cameron are all excited to help their uncle, Cactus Joe, with chores at the rodeo. Their first chore is watering the horses before the Bareback Bronc Riding event. "It starts at 3:00, so be there at 2:00 sharp," Joe tells them. "You'll need an hour to get the job done." Katie makes a schedule. The next day, the rodeo starts with a Parade and Grand Entry at 10:00 a.m., followed by lunch at noon, and then it's time to water the horses at 2:00 p.m. By lunchtime, Katie and Cameron are running late. They feel awful when the see Cactus Joe taking care of the horses because they didn't arrive in time. But they get a chance to make it up by catching loose calves one half hour before the Calf Roping Contest. Katie makes up another schedule: Barrel Racing at 10:30 a.m., lunch at noon, Livestock Show at 1:30 p.m., then catching calves at 2:30 p.m. Cameron checks his watch and this time they make it! For the really important final task of handing out ribbons for the Bull Riding Championship—Cactus Joe's specialty—Katie's schedule includes both the starting and ending time for events, so they'll be sure to be on time. But even the best plans can get knocked off course when a bunch of bicycle-riding clowns drive by.
Put the students in groups discussing the time on an analog clock. Each group will come to the board and write the time in digital format, and written out in words. The group will then explain to the class why it was on that time.
Ask the students to play this crocodile telling time game.
Ask the students to Write a short summary on what they just learned about telling time from What Time is it Crocodile.
First, read "The Clock Struck One" to the students. Once the story has been read, the teacher will put 1:00 o'clock onto the big yellow clock and then the teacher will ask one of the students what time they think it is. Once they tell you it is one, then you will ask that same student what happened at that time in the story. Then you will move on to 2:00 o'clock and repeat the same steps until you get to 12:00 o'clock.
Each student is assigned to write their very own school schedule. Once every student has wrote their own, the class must split up into groups to discuss and collaborate in making a school schedule as a group. The teacher should supply a list of events that are required to be on the schedule for example, reading, lunch, and related arts.
Rodeo Relay: The class will divide into teams. The teams will line up in the back of the classroom. A series of words will be placed on the board. The teacher will read off a definition to each team. The team must converse and decide which is the correct word. For every correct word that is chosen, a point is given.
Once the groups complete their schedules, they then can present their day to the rest of the class. Giving answers to why the group decided to have this event at this time and so on.
Once the teacher has read the book to the student, ask them to write their own version of the story. Ask the students to tell what they would do each time the clock chimed.

Bats Around the Clock
Bats, typically nocturnal creatures, gather for a 12 hour dance-a-thon, American Batstand style. Starting early at one o'clock, they start with the shug, moving through various other dances like the twist, hootchi-coo and hokeypokey as the clock strikes hour after hour all the way to midnight. Click Dark hosts the rockin' dance event and a special bat in blue suede shoes makes a late night appearance. Little mice hold up analog clock images at each hour, making the book especially fun for kids that are learning to tell time.
