  • Telling Time
  • When we can read a clock, we can find out when it is time to do something, like meet a friend at the park or watch a favorite show.
    Why should I learn to read a clock?
  • This looks pretty hard, are you sure I can do this?
    Sure you can! It may take some practice, but by learning the basics you’ll be on your way in no time!
  • Types of Clocks
    There are two different type of clocks, digital and analog.
    Can you guess which is analog and which is digital?
  • This is a digital clock. Instead of pointing to the numbers with hands, the numbers are displayed electronically.
  • This is an analog clock. Today, we will be learning how to read an analog clock.
  • The body of the clock is called the face.
  • The clock contains 12 numbers. We can read the time as one o’clock, two o’clock, three o’clock…you get the picture!
  • Thehands point to the numbers.
  • This hand is called the hour hand.
    The hour hand is the shortest hand. You can remember this by remembering that “hour” is a short word.
  • The hour hand will circle the entire clock two times each day because there are 24 hours in one day.
  • Hours between 12:00 midnight and 12:00 noon are read as A.M. For example, you wake up in the morning at 6:00 AM
  • Any hour between 12:00 noon and 12 midnight is read as P.M. You eat dinner with your family at 6:00 P.M.
  • This is the minute hand. It tells us the minute of the hour.
    The minute hand is longer than the hour hand. Remember that “minute” is a long word.
    Remember, there are 60 minutes in on hour.
  • This is the second hand. It tells us how many seconds have passed in the minute.
    Remember, there are 60 seconds in one minute.
  • To read the hour, look at the hour hand. The hour hand is beside the 5, so it is five o’clock.
  • To find the minute, look at the number the minute hand is beside. We can then skip count to find the time.
  • Remember:
    1=5 minutes after the hour
    2=10 minutes after the hour
    3=15 minutes after the hour
    4=20 minutes after the hour
    5=25 minutes after the hour
    6=30 minutes after the hour
    7=35 minutes after the hour
    8=40 minutes after the hour
    9=45 minutes after the hour
    10=50 minutes after the hour
    11=55 minutes after the hour
    12=60 or 1 hour
  • Let’s put it all together!
    First, look at the hour hand. What hour is it?
    Next, look at the minute hand. What minute of the hour is it?
    Answer: 10 o’clock. The hour hand is by the 10.
    Answer: 10 after 10. We can skip count by fives. 1=5 minutes after. 2 = 10 minutes after.
  • Wow! This was really fun! I feel so much better about telling time!
    All it takes is a little practice. Well, that’s all the time we have for today. Next time we can practice telling time to the nearest minute.
