These clock worksheets introduce the half-hour. If you haven't done so yet, I would recommend covering telling time to the hour with my previous time worksheets, you can find the lesson at the bottom of the page.
If your student has already mastered the hour, then you're ready to move on.
Things are going to get a bit tricky when you introduce half-hours to your child, at least they did with our daughter.
With the hour worksheets, the minute hand was not a big deal. It stayed on the twelve and didn't move. When introducing the half-hour, students will need to pay careful attention to where the minute hand is.
I've created a few worksheets that focus solely on the half-hour as a way to introduce the concept. Later worksheets mix both hour and half-hour times that will test the child's understanding.
The first worksheet shows six different clocks. In each one, the minute hand is on the 6 indicating that it is half-past a certain hour. Have your child determine the correct time and write it on the line under each clock.
The second sheet is the same concept, but instead of writing the time, your child needs to draw a line from the clocks on the left to the correct time on the right.
In the third worksheet, your child is given the time and must then draw the correct minute and hour hand on the clock face.
The remaining activity sheets are based on the same concepts above, but they are more of a review. They reintroduce the hour concept that we covered in the previous lesson.
Students must now differentiate between 'on-the-hour' and 'half-past' clock faces.
If your child is struggling with half-hours, you may want to try reviewing the previous lesson on hours.
