Maniac Monday-Elapsed Time QR Code Freebie

It's the Monday before spring break for me...I can't begin to tell you how excited I am for a week off! I'm linking up with Classroom Freebies for Maniac Monday, as well as the Teaching Blog Addict for Freebie Friday (I can never seem to get my act together in time to post a freebie on Friday. Thankfully they leave the link open all weekend!)
I don't know about you, but my students really struggle with finding elapsed time. Some of them still struggle to read an analog clock. To help reenforce these skills I created these QR code cards. There are sixteen problems for the students to solve. Three of the cards are pictures of clocks and I ask them what time the clock shows. The other 13 cards are finding elapsed time, or using elapsed time to figure out when something starts or ends. You can download the cards here. 

If you use them, be sure to let me know what you think! Don't forget to check out the other awesome freebies people are sharing this week.
