I Have Who Has? Telling Time: Differentiated!

So if you haven't figured it out, I'm a little a lotta obsessed with "I Have, Who Has?" games. I just LOVE how the game is quick and easy, educational, and FUN! So I was perusing TPT the other day, checking out my options, and I wanted to download a telling time version, except... everything that was out there was all hour, all half-hour, all 5 minutes, etc... I don't know about your class, but I have a wide range of abilities in mine, and there is NO WAY I can keep EVERYONE engaged when all of the cards are the same.

One of my teaching mantras is "Differentiation is the name of my game." Why can't there be an "I Have, Who Has?" with differentiated cards? Some cards are on the easy side, some are average, and some are more challenging for the smarties. Sounds like a good idea, hey? So I did it!

I am seriously SO excited about this! I color coded the cards based on their level of difficulty:
Red cards: times to the hour
Orange cards: times to the half-hour
Green cards: times to the quarter-hour
Blue cards: times to 5 minutes
Purple cards: times to 5 minutes also, but they are more difficult due to the placement of the hour hand ( ex. 10:55, 6:50)

Now, everyone can play the same game, no matter what their ability, AND no one has to know that the cards have varying degrees of difficulty! WOO!!!



  1. I love these games. I really love the fact that it can be used with all levels. I would love to win a copy.

  2. We have to do Morning Meeting very quickly because we have specials first thing in the morning, so we just do a question of the day. They really love "Would You Rather..." questions. Thanks for the giveaway! Meredith

    1. Oooh that's a good idea! I have specials right away too, and we're always starting Morning Meeting, going to the special, and then coming back to finish.
