Telling Time Puzzles
Telling Time Game
This clock games for kids includes 24 puzzles, covering time to the hour and half hour. Each puzzle has two pieces. One piece has a jar and a clock and the other puzzle piece has a bug and the time written out.
Time Games for Kids
It is recommended that you print these time games for kids on cardstock or laminate prior to use. This will allow you to reuse this printable year after year! Next cut out each puzzle. I always find it easiest to use a paper cutter to cut out all 24 puzzles first and then go back and cut the puzzles out with scissors.
Telling the time puzzle
To start this clock puzzles activity by placing all of the puzzles pieces on the floor or table. A student will first choose any piece they want. This student chose a clock face that showed 3:00.
Note: Telling time to the hour is a skill children should work on as part of Kindergarten math. This printable turns it into a fun, kindergarten math activity or math game!
Learning to tell the time
Next, the student sorted through all of the puzzle pieces looking for the “3:00” puzzle.
As they complete each puzzle, they will set it to the side so that they have enough room to complete the remaining puzzles
Teaching telling time
First Graders will work on matching not only the clocks to the hour, but also telling time to the half hour. This math activity for 1st graders is the perfect addition to any grade 1 math . Students will continue to follow these steps until all puzzles are complete!
If you think that your students would be overwhelmed with all 48 puzzle pieces at once, start small. You can give them only time to the hour first or provide them with only a handful of the puzzle pieces. As they master those, you can slowly add in more.
