Time Puzzle

One of the most important math skills kids learn in the elementary years is telling time.  They need to learn not only how to tell time, but also how to solve more advanced problems involving time. It often seems, however, that my daughter needs a lot of practice and review. To help her practice telling time to the hour and half hour, I created this fun, hands on clock game for kindergartners, grade 1, and grade 2 students. These time puzzles are the perfect math activity for sneaking in some math practice!

Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love this clock game for helping kids practice telling time to the half hour and hour. Use this as extra practice as you school at home, at a math center in your classroom, or as a supplement to your homeschool math curriculum.

Having to find matching pieces also helps her self check because if she mixes up the hour or the minutes and doesn’t see that answer as an option, she knows she’s done something wrong.

I would encourage your kids to sometimes look at the analog clocks and find the appropriate match, and other times to use the digital display and find the matching clock.

That way they get used to telling time both ways.
