These am and pm worksheets have children figuring out times they would perform an activity and if it would be am or pm. While working on the worksheet they will also be reading analog clocks in five-minute increments.
Our lives revolve around time. We have to leave at 11:45 AM to get you dropped off at school on time. Bedtime is at 8:00 PM, and most importantly dinner is served around 5:30 PM every night.
It is such an abstract concept, but an important one for our little ones to grasp.
First, they have to understand the difference between hours and minutes. Then it is which hand shows what, and how the hour is the actual number….but the minutes you have to calculate on your own. Then there are words that describe time, like quarter to and half past. And don’t forget about AM and PM.
This AM and PM worksheet is a fun cut and paste activity that helps you review this concept and give children real-life examples of activities that happen in the AM vs the PM.

AM and PM Worksheets
Children need to understand the difference between AM and PM. One of the best ways to do this is focus on our kiddos schedule.
This AM and PM sheet looks at kids schedules and focuses on what they do in the AM vs the PM.
Prep – Work
I love cut and paste activities because they require almost no-prep work on my part, but are so much more fun than a regular worksheet.
For this sheet, first print off the printables.
Then gather up scissors and glue.
Now, you are ready to go.

What to do?
Each worksheet has the same thing.
- a statement describing an activity.
- A space to put an analog clock.
- Next, a place to put AM or PM
- Finally, a spot to write the digital time.
The children need to read the activity and figure out what time it might happen (there could be more than one answer)
In this example, we read about Caden making his bed. Hopefully, he is doing this when he wakes up. So a good answer could be 8:05 Am.
In the next example, Bryce is playing at the park on a Saturday morning. A good answer would be 10:25 AM.
I hope your children enjoy learning about AM and PM as they look at different activities they can relate to.
