It is never to early to learn to tell the time, so we have some great resources, courtesy of EasyRead Time Teacher clocks, for your kids to help them to learn how to tell the time easily. (Note: this page contains affiliate links)
These resources are split into three sections:
- Introduction to learning to tell the time,
- Learning to tell the time in 15 minute segments, and finally
- Help with learning to tell the time in 5 minute segments.
The printables are also available on the EasyRead Time Teacher website as well.
Introduction to telling the time
This work sheet helps children to understand the basics of a clock face; pointing out to them the minutes to and minutes past concept. In addition, it introduces the idea of the hands on the clock face as well.
The worksheet uses the EasyRead Time Teachers to give the kids a little bit of extra help; as these clock faces are split into two, which provides excellent visual clues for the children to understand the difference between minutes to and minutes past.
Learning to tell the time in 15 minute segments
Once children have understood the basic concepts within telling the time, it is time for them to learn how to tell the time in 15 minute segments. We have another set of worksheets from EasyRead Time Teacher for you to help with this as well. There are five sheets, each offering questions on the clock face to improve kids’ understanding of the concepts of telling the time.
Learning to tell the time in greater depth; 5 minute segments
Once the children have understood the basic concepts within the intro and the 15 minute worksheets, they are ready to move on to the slightly more complicated sheets within telling the time.
These worksheets help the children to work at much greater depth in telling the time; including the important ability to understand the clock face in 5 minutes intervals; from 5 minutes to to 5 minutes past!
The kids will really be able to “get” telling the time, thanks to these comprehensive worksheets. The 15 minutes sheets include 5 pages of questions again, so plenty to occupy them both at home and in school.
