Digital clocks show us the time.
To tell time, we read the numbers or “digits.”
The first 2 digits tell the hour.
The second 2 digits tell the minutes
It is twelve, thirty.
The clock shows that 30 minutes have passed since it was 12 o’clock.
Since there are only 60 minutes in an hour, it must be half way to the next hour.
30 + 30 = 60. What time will it be in 30 more minutes?

The little hand tells the hour.
The hour is seven. We write it like this.
The big hand tells the minute.
A new hour begins every time the minute hand is at the 12.
