# Lesson 17

Día 3 de centros

## Warm-up: Cuál es diferente: Relojes (10 minutes)

### Narrative

This warm-up prompts students to compare four images of clocks. It gives the teacher an opportunity to hear how students use terminology and talk about characteristics of the clocks and the times they show in comparison to one another. Listen for the way students use “hands,” “hour,” and “half hour” and ask them to clarify what they mean in the synthesis.

### Launch

• Display image.
• “Escojan uno que sea diferente. Prepárense para compartir por qué es diferente” // “Pick one that doesn’t belong. Be ready to share why it doesn’t belong.”

### Narrative

The purpose of this activity is for students to learn stage 2 of the Which One center, which was first introduced in kindergarten. One partner chooses a shape on the game board. The other partner asks yes or no questions to figure out what shape they chose. Students may use counters to cover up shapes that have been eliminated. Students work with triangles and quadrilaterals.

Juguemos una ronda juntos. Voy a escoger una figura y ustedes pueden hacerme preguntas” // “We are going to learn a new way to play Which One. One partner picks a shape that is on the board. Their partner asks them yes or no questions to help them guess which shape their partner choose. Let’s play one round together. I will pick a shape and you can ask me questions.”
