# Learn and Write Time to the Hour with Examples

Sep 24, 2022

## Key Concepts

• Tell time to the hour.
• Tell time to the half hour.

## Clock

• In a clock, the shorter hand is called the hour hand.
• The hour hand tells us what hour it is.
• The long hand is called the minute hand
• The minute hand points to the minute

### A. Read time to the hour

• When the minutes hand points to 12, we say o’clock

Example: The minutes hand is at 12 and the hours hand is at 3.

So, the time is 3 o’clock.

### B. Digital clock

• We can show time using a digital clock also.
• The hours are written before the colon.
• The minutes are written after the colon.

### C. Time to the half hour

• When the minute hand is on 6, we can say that 30 minutes or half past the hour.
• Half an hour is equal to 30 minutes.

## Exercise

• Draw the hour and minute hands on the clock to show the time as 5 o’clock.
• What is the time shown by the clock?
• Draw the hands on the clock to represent the time shown on the digital clock.
• Fill the missing terms of the pattern:
3:00, 5:00, , 9:00, .
• If the time is as shown, between which numbers does the hour hand lie?

### What we have learned:

• When the minute hand of a clock is on 6, we can say that 30 minutes or half past the hour.
