These hands-on activities help kids to learn how to tell the time to o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.
Kids love making clocks out of paper plates! With these templates, kids can choose to make a lion, clock, cat, mouse, tiger, panda or bear clock. Begin by coloring the template and cutting it out. Then paste the clock parts onto a standard sized paper plate. To make movable clock hands, you’ll need to make a small hole in the center of each plate so children can affix the clock hands with a split pin.
Telling The Time Bingo
This game is suitable for 2 – 6 players and is an awesome way to help kids read analogue clocks. Begin by giving each kid a bingo mat and ten counters. The “bingo caller” calls out a time and if a player has that clock on their mat, they need to place a counter on it. The first player to cover all of their clocks needs to call out “bingo” and is declared the winner. Encourage children to look at the bingo caller card if they forget what a specific time looks like.
Telling The Time Worksheets
I love worksheets that make it easy to differentiate. So I’ve made worksheets that focus on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. There are also worksheets with mixed times to help kids revise what they have learned. Kids learn how to read analogue clocks, write times and draw clock hands. All of the worksheets come with an answer sheet to make marking super easy!
