The Hands of Time

Count the numerals on the clock. There are only 12 hours on a clock face. So, the hour hand is a short hand.

“Minute” is a long word. The minute hand is the longer hand.

minute

“Hour” is a short word. The hour hand is the shorter hand.

hour

When the minute hand is pointing to 12, read the time as “o’clock”. In this case, the hour hand is pointing to the 3 and it is “three o’clock”.

Now the minute hand is pointing to 12 and the hour hand is pointing to the 5. So, we read the time as

“five o’clock”.

• If we were to slice the clock into 4 equal sections, we would have 4 QUARTERS. Each quarter would represent a 15 minute section.

• When the minute hand is pointing to the numeral 3, we say that the time is “A quarter after/past _____.” Here, the clock shows a quarter past seven, or 7:15.

• When the minute hand is pointing to the numeral 9, we say that the time is “A quarter til/to _____.” Here, the clock shows a quarter to five, or 4:45.

• When the minute hand is pointing to the numeral 6, we say that the time is “Half past _____.” Here, the clock shows half past 2, or 2:30. Notice how the hour hand is half-way in between the 2 and the 3.

• 12:00 AM is MIDNIGHT (We are sleeping)

• 12:00 PM is NOON (lunchtime)

• When we say AM, we are referring to the hours before NOON.

• When we say PM, we are referring to the hours past NOON.

• 60 seconds= 1 minute

• 60 minutes= 1 hour

• 24 hours= 1 day

• 30 minutes= 1 half hour

• 15 minutes= 1 quarter hour
