What Time is It?

I remember when I was a child back in first grade, I was so thrilled because I learned how to tell time. After all these years I can still remember the large clocks that we made out of cardboard, we cut out the clock, the hour and minute hands, put in the numbers, drew a line down the center and wrote before and after. Then my teacher punched a hole in the middle and the hands were attached with a paper fastener. She would tell us to find a particular time and we would move the hands to show her.

Since I was able to learn this so easily and it was fun to do, I decided to use her idea and make my own bundle to help children learn how to tell time.

 What’s inside
 Page  3 Instructions for Teacher
 Page  4 Large clock for students
  Pages 5-18  Student Worksheets
                                    Pages 20-33 Answer Sheets 
 They need to be cut out and glued to cardboard or oak tag. This can be done by you, ahead of time, or your class depending on their ability.

As a group lesson, you can either say a time, or write it on the board, the children are to move the hands accordingly. After you have taught the   lesson there are worksheets for the hour, half hour, 15 minutes before and after, 5, 10, 20, 25 minutes before and after the hour.
