Telling Time For Children – Learning the Clock snoring snoring snoring Wow wow Im so sorry that you guys comin sleeping I know that I shouldnt be sleeping the middle of the day I got this awesome new clock but I dont know how to tell time yet so I do not know when to go to sleep hey Ive got an idea maybe you guys can help me. Will you help me learn how to tell time so I know when to go to bed Thanks guys I appreciate it lets zoom over here to the clocks learn how to tell time this first clock we see is an analog clock this is the new clock I got to learn time lets start off with an easier version of this clock okay the little pointer that spins is called hand this clock is a training clock and only has one small hand on it the small hand is called the our hand around the edge of the clock we have numbers that go from one all the way to 12 this small hand tells us what the hour is right now our hand is pointing to the three so it must be 3 oclock now what hour is it? 6 oclock right lets look at another what hours is this?

I heard some of you say it is still six oclock and youre correct that our does not change until it is pointing right at the next number as long as the hand points between the six in the seven it is still six oclock lets try one more right now the hour hand is between the 11 and the 12 so is this eleven oclock or twelve oclock? it is still eleven oclock it will not be twelve oclock until the our hand points right at the 12 good job guys. Now this training clock works great to tell us what our readers but what if you have to be home by a certain time in the middle hour, it would be difficult to know exactly when to leave with just using the our hand, that is why we have what we call the minute hand lets bring in one of our big kid clocks this clock has a big hand and a small hand we already know the small hand tells us the hour but do you know what this hand does? This long is the minute hand the minute hand tells us how much time has passed after the hour. When telling time we always look at the hour hand first, on this clock the hour hand is pointing to the 12 and the minute hand is pointing to the one so would we say the time is 12 and one minute?

I know you might be tempted to say yes but that is not correct each one of these increments are counted by 5s there are five minutes between each of these big numbers so when the minute hand is that the one five minutes have passed so this is five minutes 10 minutes 15 minutes 20 minutes 25 minutes 30 minutes 35 minutes forty minutes 45 minutes 50 minutes 55 minutes and at the 12 the minute stock back over zero so right now the time is 12 05 the hour hand is at the 12 and the minute hand is pointing at the one which is five minutes lets look at another one remember we first look at the small hand for the hour. It is halfway between the three and the four so its just a our hand we know it is 3 oclock now we look at the minute hand it is pointing to the six does that mean it is three and six minutes? No you are right we have to count by fives to get the minutes lets count 5 10 15 20 25 30 30 minutes, so the time is 3:30 because the hour is three and after counting by 5s we see that the minute hand is pointing to 30 minutes lets do one last one can you help me out on this one great okay you caught me sleeping earlier because my bedtime is 8 oclock at night when I saw the big hand pointing to the eight I thought it was my bedtime to get the correct time we need to look at that our hand first what number is the small our hand pointing to? it is that the 2 still so that hour is 2 great job now how many minutes have passed remember to count by increments of five can you tell me what the minutes are? The minutes are 40 so the time is 2:40 great job everyone now that I know how to tell time I will not try to sleep at 2:40 in the afternoon thank you so much for your help guys remember to keep practicing and you will get better at this well see you next time goodbye Telling Time For Children – Learning the Clock snoring snoring snoring Wow wow Im so sorry that you guys comin sleeping I know that I shouldnt be sleeping the middle of the day I got this awesome new clock but I dont know how to tell time yet so I do not know when to go to sleep hey Ive got an idea maybe you guys can help me.
