The short hand is called the hour hand. The tall hand is called the minute hand. Today the minute hand will stay on the number 12 and we will focus on the short hand or hour hand. The number that the hour hand points to tells the hour of the day.
Teaching time to the hour.
The video will have first graders learning about the hour and minute hand on the clock while they match their clock with the song.

Students will write the time by the hour in words under each clock.
