# Telling Time: 60 Minutes in an Hour

#### LYRICS

Our class came in from recess,
Now we were starving really bad,
Our teacher said there’s ice cream,
Exactly for one hour,
Our teacher started singing,
But every student wanted to sing,
5 -10-15-20-25-30
That’s a half hour And we’re still really hungry!
35 – 40 – 45 – 50 – 55 – 60
Well, 60 minutes is 1 hour so I guess it’s ice cream time!
And then came Tuesday!
Our class came in from recess, and we had run around
Now we were starving really bad,
Our teacher said there’s cupcakes,
Exactly for one hour, 60 minutes was our fate!
Our teacher started singing, a 60-minute song,
But every student wanted to sing, an hour is too long!
5 -10 – 15 – 20 – 25 – 30
That’s a half hour And we’re still really hungry!
35 – 40 – 45 – 50 – 55 – 60
Well, 60 minutes is 1 hour so I guess it’s cupcake time…
And then came Wednesday!
Our class came in from recess, and we had run around
Now we were starving really bad,
Exactly for one hour,
Our teacher started singing,
But every student wanted to sing,
5 -10-15-20 25, 30
That’s a half hour And we’re still really hungry!
35 – 40 – 45 – 50 – 55 – 60
Well 60 minutes is 1 hour so I guess it’s cookie time…
Now, let’s review
The long hand on the clock shows the minutes and the small hand shows the hour
We always say the hour, or where the small hand is pointing, first
For example, this clock shows 3 O’clock
If we wanted to show 3:15
We start with 3 O’clock and then we can count by 5’s until we get to 15
5-10-15
Notice how each number on the clock stands for one group of 5 minutes
So 3:15 is when the long hand is pointing to the 3,
If we were to show 4:45
We’d start at 4 O’clock,
and then count by 5’s until we get to 45
5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40-45
You can see that 45 is at the number 9
and that’s 4:45
can you use a learning clock to make some of your favorite times of the day?
And then came Thursday
Our class came in from recess, and we had run around
now we were starving really bad,
our teacher said there’s chocolate,
Exactly for one hour, 60 minutes was our fate
Our teacher started singing, a 60 minute song
But every student wanted to sing, an hour is too long!
5 – 10 -15 – 20 – 25 – 30
That’s a half hour and we’re still really hungry!
35 – 40 – 45 – 50 – 55 – 60
Well, 60 minutes is one hour,
and then came Friday
Our class came in from recess, and we had run around
now we were starving really bad,
Our teacher said there’s fresh fruits,
exactly for one hour, sixty minutes was our fate!
Our teacher started singing, a 60 minute song
But every student wanted to sing, an hour is too long!
5 – 10 – 15 – 20 – 25 – 30
That’s a half hour and we’re still really hungry!
35 – 40 – 45 – 50 – 55 – 60
