Lesson List


 

The long hand on a clock is called the minute hand.  It takes the minute hand 60 minutes or 1 hour to go all the way around the clock.

Look at the minute hand on the clock below.

The minute hand is on the 12.

The time is 5:00.  The two dots are called a colon.

The number to the left of the colon tells the hour.  The numbers to the right of the colon tell the minutes.

When the minute hand moves to the 1, then 5 minutes have passed. It is 5 minutes after 5.  The time is 5:05.

When the minute hand moves to the 2, then 5 more minutes have passed. It is 10 minutes after 5.  The time is 5:10.

You count by fives for each new number on the clock. 5, 10 15, 20, 25, 30,...

Remember there are 30 minutes in a half an hour.   Look at the clock below.

It is 35 minutes after 9.  The time is 9:35.

Look carefully at the short hour hand.  It is between the 9 and the 10.   That is because it is after 9:00 but it is not yet 10:00.

 

Practice telling time to 5 minutes.

Don't forget the colon (:).
