Telling Time Activities For Kids

Telling Time Activities For Kids

These Telling Time Activities and Printables are excellent teacher resources for teaching everything about reading the time! Check out these fun puzzles, mini-books, task cards, craft and more for telling the time on analogue and digital clocks.

Teaching kids about time can be tricky to plan and teach. Many kids find it difficult because it’s an abstract concept, and one that adults seem to have control over.

To make things even more confusing the units of time are not metric!

No wonder kids find learning to tell the time challenging!

Difficulties With Time

There’s no disputing that the concept of time can be tricky for children and adults too! 

It’s a difficult concept because it is so abstract, you cannot see it or hold ‘half an hour, or ten seconds in your hands!

Time cannot be measured directly like you can when measuring length, capacity, volume, mass etc. Additionally, time is not decimal but times for sporting events includes tenths and hundredths.

So you can start to see why the concept of Time can cause difficulties!

Teaching Kids Time

Teaching the concept of time involves a lot more than learning how to read the time. It also includes:

  • Sequencing
  • Duration of events in everyday life
  • Day and night,days, weeks months, seasons, minutes, hours & seconds
  • Telling time
  • time equivalents
  • converting units of
  • Analogue and digital time
  • am and pm
  • 24 hour time
  • timetables and elapsed time
  • calendar and dates

When teaching the concept of time I also like to teach sequencing, procedures and recounts in the English learning area to help reinforce understandings.
