# Time

Time should be something you know all about!

There are two hands on the clock: The minute hand-the larger hand because minute is a larger word.  The hour hand is the smaller hand because hour is a small word.

“Quarter after”  15 minutes AFTER an hour

Example: “Quarter after”5=  5:15

“Quarter til or Quarter to”  15 minutes BEFORE an hour

Example: “Quarter til” 5= 4:45

“Half past” 5 =5:30

Elapsed Time is the time that passes from the start to the end of an activity.

First you need to make a t-chart or t-table.  Put the start time on the left side and the end time on the right side.  Work with the hour(s) first, then you work with the minutes.  Don’t forget to use those bubbles when your adding up the hour(s) and minutes!

Example:  Start: 5:48AM End: 8:56AM

5:48AM                           8:56AM

6:48AM                           8:48AM

7:48AM                           8:53AM

8:48AM                           8:54AM

8:55AM

8:56AM

3hrs.                                13 minutes
