Fun Telling Time Game- Matching Digital and Analog Clocks

Fun Telling Time Game- Matching Digital and Analog Clocks

Are you looking for a fun telling time game for your kids? I LOVE when my daughter comes up to me and asks what time we will be doing something. Why you may ask? Simple- she is now learning to read the clock and has the tools to master it. Telling the time can be such a liberating experience for a child.

They are empowered because they know what time it is and what normally happens then. For example, my kids know that after lunch is Quiet Time and that happens around 1 pm and ends at 3:30 pm. I created a set of telling time cards that allows her to master matching digital and analog clocks.

When we started teaching J how to tell the time with a few basics such as what hour is it. She is now very comfortable with times that include :30 as well as :15 in addition to o’clock. The set of cards that I made allows her to expand on this knowledge as well as work on her counting by 5’s to decipher the correct time.

Use this fun telling time game to help your kids master reading a clock!

FIRST Print the telling time cards on cardstock. If your printer allows it, print all the analog clock sheets back and front to save paper.

SECOND Cut the cards out and create a stack with both.

THIRD Decide if you want to work on matching the digital to the analog or vice versa. If you want to match the digital to the analog, simply place a few analog clocks on a flat surface and lay out all the digital time cards. Allow your child to sort through the clocks. Placing the digital times in order also helps.
