Telling Time Song Lyrics:

Stretch out the hour hand.
See where on the clock it lands.
The last number it went by
is the number five.

Stretch out the minute hand.
See where on the clock it lands.
Each line equals one minute;
so the time is five oh six.

Every number the hour hand goes by
represents one hour of time.
Then count the minutes out of sixty,
and you'll be telling time with me!

Stretch out the hour hand.
See where on the clock it lands.
Nine’s the last number it went by;
so the hour hand points to nine.

Stretch out the minute hand.
See where on the clock it lands.
It’s pointing right at the five;
so the time is nine-twenty-five.

Every number the hour hand goes by
represents one hour of time.
Then count the minutes out of sixty,
and you'll be telling time with me!

Stretch out the hour hand.
See where on the clock it lands.
The hour hand last passed the "eight,"
so the hour of time is "eight."

Stretch out the minute hand.
See where on the clock it lands.
It points to four, precisely,
so the time is eight twenty.

Every number the hour hand goes by
represents one hour of time.
Then count the minutes out of sixty,
and you'll be telling time with me!

The hour hand is shorter, always!
It goes around twice each day.
The first time 'round is "A.M."
Second time it's called "P.M."

A.M. starts at midnight’s moon
and continues until noon.
So we call noon twelve P.M.,
and it goes 'til twelve A.M.

Every number the hour hand goes by
represents one hour of time.
Then count the minutes out of sixty,
and you'll be telling time with me!

We count five, ten, fifteen, twenty,
twenty-five, thirty, thirty-five, forty,
forty-five, fifty, fifty-five, sixty...
minutes on each clock we see.

This song targets TEKS and Common Core learning standards from both 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade. Look into the relevant standards here, or dig deeper into the 12-hour clock here.

If you are interested in getting ideas on how to plan a robust standards-aligned telling time lesson, we recommend checking out Instructure's recommendations for common core standards 2.MD.7, and 3.MD.1 . These pages help break down standard language, lay out the grade-appropriate level of rigor for each concept, and offer a variety of suggestions for activities (lesson seeds) that help students achieve their learning targets.
