Telling Time: Games, Worksheets and More

When I shared the free skip-counting pages a little while back, I mentioned that ED has been working a lot on clocks.  I thought I’d share some of the clock-type activities we use in our homeschool.

I made ED a packet of time sheets from the Teacher’s Corner:  Time Worksheet Generator.  You can create worksheets that suit your child’s needs. You can create worksheets to the hour, half-hour, quarter hour, or by  ten-minute, five minute or  minute intervals. They also let you choose the style of the clock face. I’ve pasted in a few examples below:


I also brought out this really cute clock that I found online a couple of years ago. The idea and printable came from Suddenly 2nd Grade. It’s called the Race to Tell Time.

Mrs. Nielson has the bottom sheet available to print out too, but when we made it I felt it’d be better for the kids to write the numbers.
Here’s a close-up:

We have a set of similar clock printables at this post. It has a set of clock printables and some free skip counting by 5s practice pages. This is free to download:

A while back I also shared a great online game that I let the kids play now and then called Stop the Clock.

Here’s a picture of Stop the Clock — Level 1 – learning time to the half hour and hour:


Here are direct links to the other levels:

Stop the Clock — Level 2 — fifteen minute intervals

Stop the Clock — Level 3 — five minute intervals

Stop the Clock — Level 4 – to the minute

Stop the Clock — Level 5 — military time (such as 18:19)

If you have younger kids just starting to tell time, you might be interested in the Kitty Clocks I made for ED a year or so ago.

If you’re interested in these two pages, you’ll need to click on both links below:

Kitty-Clock Analog Clock

This is the board we use with ED’s clock cards (we use Fast Track for most anything when it comes to math!!). When ED flips over a 3 o’clock card, she figures out the time and moves that many spaces. She continues (drawing another card if she needs to) until she can’t move any more.

P1230059clock-fast-trackHere’s a close-up of the board if you want to make your own. The idea came from Peggy Kaye’s Games for Math. It’s a wonderful resource for making your math time more fun!

I made a gameboard similar to the one above that you can download for free over at this post: Free Ultimate Math Game Board

 Animal Packet: This packet covers the basic characteristics of vertebrates and invertebrates. Goes over insects vs. spiders. Covers wild vs. domesticated animals and animal tracks.


Learning the Multiplication Facts:  As my daughter moved into learning her multiplication facts I looked around for the kind of multiplication practice that would help her. The math book she was using went through the math facts a bit too quickly for her.  She needed quite a bit of repetition and wanted bright, colorful worksheets. I wound up making my own sets of practice pages and games. She loved that! Be sure to check out our Multiplication Bundle here: Learning the Multiplication Tables 2s thru 9s. Scroll down to see the links to these individual packets below.

multiplication-facts-2s-thru-9sEach of the Multiplication Math Packets I made for ED had a different theme. And as you will see, the packets progressed from fairly easy, straight-forward pages in the first packet to mixed multiplication and division problems by the time she was working on her 8s.

What order did she learn her math facts?  2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 6s and 7s (because those skip counting songs were easy for her!), 4s, 9s, 8s.

Many of these are  all on sale individually or you can buy the bundle of all these materials.
