Telling Time to the Hour and Half Hour

There’s so much to learn in telling time! Mastering this clock reading skill requires a lot of practice and motivation. The common core curriculum introduces telling time in Grade 1, but many schools gives an early start from kindergarten itself.

Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.

Before teaching kids how to read a clock, have them get familiarized with the types of clocks (Digital and Analog Clock) and the parts of an Analog clock. You may use telling time posters and a hands-on activity like one included in my Telling Time pack.
