Our precious cat Corny died last week. She blessed our lives for just three years. Everyone who came to our house had a special relationship with her, because she was so loving and outgoing. As a kitten (before we adopted her) she even won a blue ribbon at a cat show in the category of “Best Household Pet.” She earned her ribbon everyday she was with us.
See ya on the Net,

Telling Time Printable (** for premium members only)
Is learning to tell time easier now that so many clocks are digital? Or is it twice as hard, because kids today have to learn to read both analog and digital clocks? Either way, learning to tell time is an important skill, and these websites make it fun.
Arcytech: Learning About Time
Learning About Time starts with a history of clocks, then describes the parts of the clock, and concludes with a lesson on telling time. The practice section of the lesson is an interactive clock that I only recommend for advanced practice because it does not have any numbers on its face. Begin by choosing whether you want to see the time on an analog or digital clock. After practicing one way, be sure to try the other. On the analog clock, I really liked the realistic way both hands move together as you mouse around the clock face.
Dositey: Telling Time
Telling Time is a collection of twenty-one free printable worksheets organized into learning hours, half-hours, minutes, quarter to, and quarter after. Dositey also sells a Telling Time mini-course, and offers the first unit (Hours) as a free demo. Be sure to turn on your speakers, as Robbie the Rabbit shows you how to read and set time on the hour.
Franklin Institute: A Matter of Time
With lesson plans, printable worksheets, and interactive quizzes, Franklin Institute’s A Matter of Time has something for everyone. My favorite clicks are the quizzes and printables. The quizzes cover both reading a clock face and “Telling Time in Different Ways,” such as “35 minutes to 12.” The printable pages include clocks (with and without numbers), activities (“Draw the hand on the clock”) and flash cards (called concentration cards) to practice with.
