Students struggle with learning to tell time, especially when you add in the vocabulary quarter past, quarter till, and half past. They need multiple exposures and repeated practice to really understand how to read a clock (both analog and digital!) and for that to translate to an understanding of what time it is. Kids who learn to read an analog clock quickly often struggle understanding what quarter past, quarter till, and half past mean and how they relate to time.
These puzzles are a way to keep practicing telling time, reading clocks, and using those time vocabulary words (o'clock, quarter past, quarter till, and half past). These telling time puzzles work great as a math center, small group practice, part of guided math, or as an early finisher activity! You can even send them home with students as additional practice in lieu of homework.
I recommend printing them on card stock and laminating before cutting them out to increase their durability.
