Telling Time in Words: Time to the
Hour

In this video, we will learn how to
tell time to the hour on an analog clock and record the time in words.

We call this type of clock an
analog clock. This part of the clock is called
its face. The numbers on the clock are used
to help us tell the time. In this video, we’re thinking about
telling time to the hour. We can use the numbers on the face
to tell us which hour it is. Analog clocks have two hands. The long hand is called the minute
hand, and the short hand is called the hour hand.

When the minute hand is pointing to
number 12, we know it’s something o’clock. The hour hand tells us what
o’clock. On this clock, it’s 7 o’clock. When the minute and the hour hand
are pointing at number 12, it means it’s 12 o’clock. Now, it’s 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock, 3
o’clock, 4 o’clock, 5 o’clock, 6 o’clock, 7 o’clock, 8 o’clock, 9 o’clock, 10
o’clock, 11 o’clock. Let’s practice telling the time to
the hour.

What time is it? Find the missing number. It is what o’clock.

The question tells us it’s
something o’clock. And if we look at the picture of
the clock, we can see that the minute hand is pointing to number 12, which means it
is something o’clock. Which hour is the hour hand
pointing to? It’s pointing to number seven. The time is seven o’clock. The missing number is seven.

Fill in the blank. What time is it? It is what o’clock.

The minute hand on the clock is
pointing to number 12. This means it’s something
o’clock. To find out what the time is, we
need to look at the hour hand. The hour hand is pointing to number
four. That means it’s 4 o’clock. The missing word is four. The time is 4 o’clock.

Liam likes reading short
stories. He decided to read a new one after
finishing his homework at 9 o’clock. Which clock shows the time he
starts reading?

The question tells us that Liam is
going to start reading when he finishes his homework at 9 o’clock. We have to choose the clock which
shows 9 o’clock. We know it’s something o’clock when
the minute hand on the clock face is pointing to number 12. The minute hand on the first clock
is pointing to number nine. It’s not something o’clock, and
it’s not 9 o’clock. So this is not the correct
clock.

Let’s look at the second clock. The minute hand or the long hand is
pointing to number 12. So it is something o’clock. And the hour hand is pointing to
number nine, which means it’s 9 o’clock. And we know that Liam starts
reading at 9 o’clock. It’s something o’clock on the third
clock. Did you work out the time? The hour hand is pointing to number
three, which means it’s 3 o’clock. Liam starts reading at 9
o’clock. The clock which shows this time is
the clock in the middle.

What have we learned in this
video? We’ve learned how to tell time to
the hour on an analog clock. And we’ve learned how to write the
time in words.
