Focus on telling time **to the hour and half hour**. Put a clock in your child’s bedroom. Ideally it should have a clear hour hand and half hour hand as this will help them to understand that the short hand shows the hour and the long hand shows the minutes. Talk about what you regularly do at different times in the day.

And we do NOT say “It’s eleven-fifteen o’clock” (11:15). We **only say “o’clock**” at the exact hour. For example, “It’s four o’clock” (4:00). Or “It’s eight o’clock” (8:00).

When you tell the time in English, **the hours always come first**. If you look at the clock and see that it is 3:00 p.m., then you can say “It is three” or “The time is three o’clock.” It is that simple! Remember that when you are talking about just the hour, and no minutes, then you will often use “o’clock.”

Age 6-7: Children should know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day. **Ages 7-8**: Children should be able to read an analog clock, using 12 hour clocks, 24 hour clocks, and Roman Numerals (I-XII).

If it’s before noon we tend to say “in the morning”. | If it’s after noon we say “in the afternoon”. |
---|---|

30 minutes past the hour is half past: | |

07:30 It’s half past seven in the morning. |
14:30 It’s half past two in the afternoon. |

45 minutes past the hour is quarter to: |

It’s ten past nine. It’s twenty-five past ten. It’s one o’clock. It’s a quarter past ten.

When the minute hand of a clock has moved from 12 and travelled a quarter of the way around the clock **to point at 3**, this is quarter past the hour. The hour hand also moves and is a quarter of the way from one number to the next one.
## What does an analog clock look like?

## What are the numbers on a clock called?

A clock or watch is called “analog” when it has moving hands and (usually) hours marked from 1 to **12** to show you the time. Some have Roman Numerals (I, II, III, etc) instead, or no numbers at all! In other words: not a digital clock.

Clocks can indicate the hour with **Roman numerals** or Hindu–Arabic numerals, or with non-numeric indicator marks. The two numbering systems have also been used in combination, with the prior indicating the hour and the latter the minute. Longcase clocks (grandfather clocks) typically use Roman numerals for the hours.
## What are the 3 hands on a clock?

There are three hands in a clock, **the hour hand, the minute hand, and the second hand**. The small hand is the hour hand and the hand bigger than the hour hand is the minute hand, and the hand that moves relatively quicker than the other two hands is the second hand or sweep.

## Telling Time For Children – Learning the Clock

In addition, when writing the times 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm, etc., it is perfectly acceptable to omit the zeroes and write 1 pm, **2** pm, instead. Finally, note that while in the US we use a 12-hour clock, some countries use a 24-hour clock, or military time.

To avoid confusion between 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. , use the 24-hour system, or write out the time in words, depending on the context: For 12 a.m. , use 00:00 (or 24:00), or **midnight**.

The short hand is **the hour hand**. It points to the current hour. The long hand is the minute hand. It tells us how many minutes have gone by after 10.

: **the long hand that marks the minutes on the face of a watch or clock**.

1577

In 1577, Jost Burgi invented the minute hand. Burgi’s invention was part of a clock made for Tycho Brahe, an astronomer who needed an accurate clock for stargazing.Feb 6, 2019

There are **60 minutes** in 1 hour. To convert from minutes to hours, divide the number of minutes by 60. For example, 120 minutes equals 2 hours because 120/60=2.

First note that a clock is a circle made of 360 degrees, and that each number represents an angle and the separation between them is 360/12 = 30. And at 2:00, the minute hand is on the 12 and the hour hand is on the 2. The correct answer is **2 * 30 = 60 degrees**.

1 : **according to the clock** the time is three o’clock. 2 —used for indicating position or direction as if on a clock dial that is oriented vertically or horizontally an airplane approaching at six o’clock.

: **15 minutes after** (a stated hour) The alarm went off at (a) quarter past six.

Half-past twelve means the same thing as **12:30**. The minute hand has moved halfway around the clock. Doesn’t it look like half of a circle?
