Learn to Tell Time with Worksheets

Learning to tell time on an analog clock is important, because it gives kids a greater awareness of the passage of time. How long does it take an hour to pass? A minute to pass? These are concepts that kids will master as they learn to read clocks. The preschool worksheets below focus on recognizing a clock and it's face. The kindergarten worksheets introduce the hour hand and kids learn to read a clock to the hour. In first grade, we will look at the minute hand and read a clock to the half and then quarter of an hour.

How to Tell Time Worksheets for Kindergarten Kids

In Kindergarten, children learn how to tell time to the hour. At this stage, children can begin by using clocks that have only the hour hand. I find it's best to start with only one hand to avoid confusion. Later, when they are comfortable reading the hour hand, introduce the minute hand. Tell the children that the "little hand" points to the hour and the big hand points to the 12, which is "o'clock."

Blank Clock Face

Clock Faces

Thanks to Math-Aids.com, you can print a blank clock face, so kids can practice writing the numbers 1-12 on the face of the clock themselves. I keep this worksheet in a reusable dry erase pocket, so kids can write the numbers with a dry erase marker over and over again. Math-Aids has other options for printing more than one clock face on a page and having the numbers on the clock pre-printed if you want to have a child draw in only the hands.

When a child has mastered time to the quarter hour with great familiarity, it's time to introduce 5 minute increments. To move to this step, the child should be counting by 5s. Use the worksheet above to write the hours, then write the minutes in 5 minute increments around the outside of the clock. Practice this daily. You may also want to use the match time worksheet below to match the analog clock to the digital time.

  • At this stage, we also used MatchTime software from Attainment Company for time drills. It presents the time to the student in digital and verbal form. The student selects the clock face that matches the time given. It's suitable for students with or without special needs. The software allows the user to choose from telling time to the hour, half hour, quarter hour, or 5 minute increment, so it can be used much earlier if you wish.
