This "telling time" song gets faster and faster, so beware! Your students will get louder and louder as they try to sing every word. In my class, we gather on the floor to sing. Two children hold Judy clocks, while the rest of the class learns from watching and singing. I have used this song for grades K-3. Here's how it correlates with Common Core State Standards:
Grade 1: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.MD.B.3
Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks.
At a first grade level, children practice telling time to the hour and half-hour directly with the song. Ask follow-up questions and use other tools to help reinforce concepts.
Grade 2: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.C.7
Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.
For second graders, use this song to review basic concepts. You'll hear my friend Dave make little comments like, "Lunchtime!" throughout the song to contextualize time for your students. After the song plays, discuss how to tell the time every 5 minutes and use follow-up materials.
Grade 3: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.MD.A.1
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
Use this song as a starting point for introducing higher-level concepts. I'll be honest. I'm always surprised when my third graders love certain songs. (Don't tell them I told you that!) This is one of those songs. One buyer (one time) wrote that her third graders did not like some of my other songs that teach. If you're worried about this, no problem. Try it, and I'll give you a 100% money-back guarantee if your kids don't love it!
