Give kids the practice they need telling time with this fun, free printable telling time game! These telling time puzzle are such a fun math activity for for kindergarten, first grade, and 2nd grade students.
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.
Telling Time Puzzles
I suggest using a laminator for durability and then cut out the puzzle pieces. Then you can give them to your kids to put together! I hope you find these puzzles to be a fun and simple way for kids to practice telling time! And if you need more practice, try this fun Spring-themed set of time practice pages! You can store the math puzzles in a ziplock bag so you are ready to practice again and again to gaim math fluency.
Telling Time Activity
This telling time practice allows you to make practicing a more regular part of your routine and we all know that practice makes perfect! This free printable clock games allows children to practice anytime. I like that it’s an activity that she can work on independently. Once she’s finished matching the puzzle pieces, I can check to see if she matched them correctly.
Telling Time Games
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.
