La Hora / Telling Time

January 3, 2021


Time telling is a great way not only to learn to tell time in Spanish but also practice numbers from 0-60. In fact I usually start this unit by doing a mini unit on numbers and this helps greatly. Even though analog clocks will probably be a thing of the past soon, I continue to teach to tell time on them. I think this is good for one’s brain , the same as looking for words in a paper dictionary.

So to start here are two charts/vocabulary lists with time telling. The first one is for younger students (K-3), the second one for upper elementary (4-6).

This is a graphic to practice telling time orally. I designed it especially to use in my remote classes:
