For kids with learning disabilities, telling time can be a pretty advanced skill. It’s one that requires a lot of cognitive processing, which many of us take for granted. Many kids begin to learn this skill in preschool, but for kids with learning disabilities, learning time and managing time struggles can go well into high school and beyond.

These telling time clock worksheets are not designed to be used in isolation. It is assumed that the adult is using these free worksheets as part of a comprehensive, multi-sensory approach to teaching the skill of telling time.

A collection of free clock worksheets focused on teaching children how to tell time, along with some colorful art supplies.

Telling time on an analog clock is beginning to feel like a lost art. But it shouldn’t be.

Any retailer will tell you that not only are sales of analog clocks declining, but even sales of watches are declining since most people just use their phone to tell time.

But learning to tell time on an analog clock can be so beneficial. It can help a child visualize blocks of time.

For example, if I say to you, “I just ate half of an apple pie,” you immediately get that visual in your brain. You know what half of an apple pie looks like.

The same holds true for half an hour. And blocks of time are just not visually demonstrated on digital clocks. By using an analog clock, a child can begin to “feel” what 15 or 30 minutes look like. Though, of course not all blocks of time feel like they pass at the same speed.

Analog clocks can also help with number recognition. And, fractions later on. After all, as far as charting it, half a pie and half an hour look exactly the same. This can help a child make connections with the concepts and help kids with slow processing speeds work to improve their processing speed.
