It can seem kind of strange to teach kids to tell time using an analog clock these days.
Most of us are used to just picking up our phones to find the time and they almost always use a digital format.
Still, learning to tell time on both analog and digital clocks is a valuable skill for young ones.
For one thing, learning to tell time to the hour can help to reinforce counting and early addition skills.
Also, it helps children become aware of elapsed time – the idea that time moves forward and needs to be regulated. (This is particularly helpful if you’re trying to get your little ones to learn to wait….lol.)
So these free printable flashcards Telling Time to the Hour can be a helpful way to help kids practice time telling skills!
And be sure to take a look at all of our free printable flashcards – there are plenty there for preschool and elementary grades!
