How to Use?
This freebie is designed to help you supplement teaching time at home. This printable focuses on both digital and analog clocks and telling time to the hour, half hour, quarter after and quarter to. Also, explore 24-hour formats, AM , PM, minutes to & minutes past. Here are some of the games we play
“What Time is it?” – Write the digital time and draw the analog clock hands.
- Use the 12- hour format first. Start with easy times – eg: 1:00, 2:00, 3:00,4:00 progressing to 12:00
- Start advancing by 15 minutes. So eg: 1:00, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45 progressing to 2:00
- Start advancing by 5 minutes. So eg: 1:00, 1:05, 1:10, 1:15 progressing to 2:00
- Explore times that have both small hands and big hands at the same number – eg: 1:05 , 2:10, 3:15, 4:20.
- For older kids, practice the detailed minute hand movements – eg 12:56, 7:09
- Explore the difference between times 1:50 & 10:10
“What Do You Do?”
Describe what we do at each of the times shown on the clocks.
“A.M. or P.M.?”
Learn whether each clock & description occurs during the a.m. or p.m.
Record the digital time to match each analog clock.
Record the analog clock hands to match the digital time. During this time, we also explored 24-hour formats
Time addition & subtraction
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time.
- Miles left school at 3:15 p.m. He walked to the library to work on his homework. It took 15 minutes to walk to the library. Brandon’s father picked him up at the library one hour after he arrived. What time did Brandon’s dad pick him up?(4:30 p.m.)
- Mini and Sam live at opposite ends of the neighborhood. It takes each of them 20 minutes to walk to school. If they reach the school at 8:15 a.m., what time did they leave home? (7:55 a.m.)
