¿Qué hora es? - La Hora (Parte 1)

Author: Donna Mehta

After viewing the video, students will be able to tell time in Spanish on-the-hour and minutes after the hour (up to :59) using the "y" method.  The "menos" method will be covered in a separate lesson.  Students will also be able to state A.M. and P.M.

After this lesson, students will ultimately be able to use telling time skills to discuss their school schedule; specifically what time their classes start and end.
