Key Facts & Information
PARTS OF A CLOCK
- A clock is an instrument used to tell the time, which is calibrated in hours and minutes.
- Hour hand. It is shorter and moves forward one clock number every 60 minutes (one hour).
- Minute hand. It is longer and moves forward one tick every 60 seconds (one minute); thus, moving from one clock number to another every 5 minutes.
- A clock is divided into 12 sections, and each section is worth 5 minutes, resulting in 60 minutes in one hour. One complete circle around the clock by the minute hand means that one hour has passed.
TELLING THE TIME
- 2:00 – It’s two o’clock.
- 2:30 – It’s half past two.
- 2:05 – It’s five past two.
- 2:35 – It’s twenty-five to three.
- 2:10 – It’s ten past two.
- 2:40 – It’s twenty to three.
- 2:15 – It’s quarter past two.
- 2:45 – It’s quarter to three.
- 2:20 – It’s twenty past two.
- 2:50 – It’s ten to three.
- 2:25 – It’s twenty-five past two.
- 2:55 – It’s five to three.
- We use AT + TIME when giving the time of a specific event.
- The class starts at nine o’clock.
- The flight leaves at ten to three.
- We use IT IS or IT’S to answer a question that asks for the time right now.
- What time is it? It is half past four.
- What time is it? It’s twenty to five.
- There are two common ways of telling the time.
- Say the hour first and then the minutes. (Hour + Minutes)
- Say the minutes first and then the hour. (Minutes + PAST / TO + Hour)
- For minutes 1 to 30, use PAST after the minutes.
- For minutes 31 to 59, use TO after the minutes.
- When it is 15 minutes past the hour, we normally say: (a) quarter past
7:15 is read: It’s (a) quarter past seven.
- When it is 15 minutes before the hour, we normally say: (a) quarter to
12:45 is read: It’s (a) quarter to one.
- When it is 30 minutes past the hour, we normally say: half past
3:30 is read: It’s half past three (but we can also say three thirty).
We use o’clock when there are NO minutes.
- For 12:00, there are three expressions used:
- Twelve o’clock
ASKING FOR THE TIME
- The common question forms we use to ask for the time right now are:
- “What time is it?”
- “What is the time?”
- A more polite way to ask for the time, especially from a stranger is:
- “Could you tell me the time please?”
- The common question forms we use to ask what time a specific event will happen are:
- “What time …?” and “When …?”
- “What time do you go to school?”
- “When does the bus leave?”
- “What time do you go to bed?”
A.M. vs P.M.
- A.M. stands for “ante meridiem.” This means before midday or before noon. The A.M. time period is the twelve hours from midnight until noon. A new day starts at 12:00 A.M. Common activities that happen in the A.M. are eating breakfast, getting ready for school, etc.
- P.M. stands for “post meridiem.” This means after midday or afternoon. The P.M. time period is the twelve hours from noon until midnight. The second half of the day starts at 12:00 P.M. Common activities that happen in the P.M. include eating dinner, going to sleep, etc.
COUNTING AND RECOGNIZING MONEY
- The PENNY is worth 1 cent. The penny has the profile of Abraham Lincoln, who was the 16th president of the United States. The back has a picture of the Lincoln Memorial. Pennies contain 97% zinc and 3% copper.
- The NICKEL is worth 5 cents. The nickel has the profile of Thomas Jefferson, who was the third president of the United States. The back of the nickel has a picture of Monticello, Jefferson’s house near Charlottesville, Virginia.
- The DIME is worth 10 cents. The dime has the profile of Franklin Roosevelt, who was the thirty-second president of the United States. The back of the dime has a picture of a torch, oak branch, and olive branch.
- The QUARTER is worth 25 cents. The dime has the profile of George Washington, who was the first president of the United States. The back of the quarter has a picture of an eagle.
