A Note from the Author

When I taught first grade, most math books taught time to the hour, then the half hour, then a quarter after, a quarter to and then all the other times. My students, who were accustomed to digital clocks, were confused as the minute hand seemed to jump all around the clock and the hour hand apparently moved randomly in the space between numbers.

After several years of difficulty and frustration, I decided to teach telling time in order around the clock. I made sure everyone could count by fives easily. We started with the hour, then five after, etc. By the time we were at twenty after, most students had caught on and could tell almost any time. The biggest problem was a time such as 8:55 where the hour hand was almost on the nine. I explained that in five minutes it would be 9:00, but since it wasn't 9:00 yet, it had to still be eight something.

Hopefully, the order and logical progression of the pages in this book will make learning to tell time very easy for those you are teaching.
