This bingo game is a great telling time for kids activity. With three different levels your kids will work on telling time to the hour, then quarter and half hour, and finally to five-minute increments. It also includes word cards like half past and quarter till.
Telling time is one of those skills that require a lot of work. You think your child has it, and you move on. Then out of the blue, you ask them to read a clock and it feels like all knowledge of analog clocks has dissipated into thin air.
Having activities and games that review time are very helpful, and should be pulled out periodically to dust the cobwebs away.
Today, I’m once again reviewing time with my first grader, and we will be doing it with this game.
Prep – Work
First, print off the game boards on card stock paper.
Next, print off the time cards on card stock paper and then cut them out.
Finally, provide game markers and you are ready to go.
How To Play
This game is played very similarly to any BINGO game.
First, the teacher draws a digital clock card or words describing time. Each player then looks to find that time on their game board.
If the player finds that time they need to show it to the teacher to guarantee it is correct, and then they may cover it up.
The game ends when a player is able to get four in a row or cover the whole board.

Telling Time For Kids – Different Levels
Telling time has three different levels to it.
We start by having children just recognize what 1:00, 2:00, etc look like….and the first set of bingo cards has children only focusing on this skill.
The second level moves into quarters. The children will get to find the clocks that show quarter after, quarter till, and half past. These times are presented in a digital form as well as word form.
Finally, children will get to practice telling time to five-minute increments.
I hope this game allows your children to have fun, while reviewing this essential skill.
