I learned in telling time that there are two hands. The big hand is the minute hand. The little hand is the hour hand. There are two quarters. One is quarter past and the other is quarter to.
I found out that the big hand is also called the minute hand and the little hand is also called the hour hand and the six is half past.
I learned that when the big hand hits the 12, it is o'clock. When it hits the 6, it is half past. The big hand is called the minute hand. The little hand is called the hour hand.
I know that when the minute hand is on the 12, it means o'clock. I learned that the 3 and the 9 mean a quarter and the 6 means half past.
On clocks when they point their big hand on the 12 and the little hand on the 4, it means that it's 4 o'clock. If the big hand is on the 6 and the small hand is on the 5, it means half past five. 3, 6, 9 and 12 are special because they are quarters of the clock.
After lunch, we made our very own clocks, so we can practise telling the time. We carefully wrote out the numbers we needed, then glued them onto a paper plate. It was important to get the numbers in the right order and to space them out properly. We began by gluing the 3, 6, 9 and 12 in place. We added hands with a split pin, so we can move them around.
