Telling Time to the Nearest Minute Song | AM & PM

Numberock's Telling Time to the Nearest Minute Song teaches young learners how to tell time on different clock styles from all around the world. After you watch this video, we hope your students will be able to tell the time on analog clocks, specifically, to the nearest minute. If we did our job right, they'll also understand the difference between AM & PM.

This video also contains great practice to help reinforce students ability to skip count by 5, which is a necessary skill that students need when trying to tell time to the minute. When this skill is mastered, we get into correct 5-minute range without even thinking about it, before finally determining the exact minute on an analog clock.

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.
