Telling Time

Teaching Tips:

This song gets faster and faster as it goes…because the children like it fast! Challenge children who “think you can sing every word” to hold model clocks in front of the class. They should move the minute hand with the words of the song. When the song
is over, do a quick 2-minute mini-lesson about telling time.

Watch for children who put the minute hand on the hour numbers 1, 2, and 3. Watching children as they hold clocks in front of the class will help you to diagnose time-telling confusion.
