Telling Time
Song for Teaching the Beginning Concepts of Telling Time
Marilyn M. Linford

Vocal     Instrumental
This song is available on Marilyn Linford's Your World at a Second Glance
.

 

There are sixty-seconds in a minute,
Sixty minutes in an hour;
Twenty-four hours in a day,
Where we can sleep, go to school and play.
Twenty-four hours in a day,
Where we sleep, go to school and play.

To keep track of all those minutes,
We watch the clock upon the wall.
Now here's two things to keep in mind,
When you are learning to tell time.
The little hand tells the hour of the day,
The big hand counts the minutes away.

It is very important to remember,
That o'clock is always at the top.
Another thing that you should know,
If o'clock is at the top, then thirty is below.
Another thing that you should know,
O'clock is at the top, and thirty is below.

If the big hand points to the three,
You call that a quarter past the hour.
When you are telling time, you see,
A quarter past is always on three.
When you are telling time, you see,
A quarter past is always on three.

If the big hand points to the nine,
You call that a quarter till the hour.
Try to always keep in mind that
A quarter till is always on nine.
Try to always keep in mind that
A quarter till is always on nine.

There are many things to remember
When you are learning to tell time.
The little hand tells the hour of the day,
The big hand counts the minutes away.
Quarter after will be on three,
Quarter till is on the nine you see.

The little hand tells the hour of the day,
The big hand counts the minutes away.
Quarter after will be on three,
Quarter till is on the nine you see.
