Learn to read hours and half hours on a standard, analog clock!

Lyrics:

Our teacher said,
It’s Monday morning,
Let’s go play!
It was only 8 AM,
And we all screamed hooray!
But when It began to rain,
That was really recess bliss,
And a half an hour passed so fast,
The clock told us this! 
It wasn’t 8 O’Clock it was 8:30
Big hand on the six,
We were really very dirty!
Big hand on the 6,
And we knew that it meant 30
Between the 8 and 8
We saw the little hand go,
Recess was over and we screamed, “Oh No!”
OH NO!

Well our awesome teacher yelled,
I’m as proud as a birdy,
That you learned the longer hand,
On the 6 makes a :30,
We washed our muddy hands,
In our shiny classroom sink,
That made our teacher happy and she gave us all a wink,
Let’s have another recess,
That starts at  9 O’Clock,
Another half hour we were really all in shock!
Another Recess? SWEET!

It wasn’t 9 O’Clock it was 9:30,
Big hand on the six,
We were really very dirty!
Big hand on the 6,
And we knew that it meant 30
Between the 9 and 10,
We saw the little hand go,
Recess was over and we screamed, “Oh No!”
OH NO!

Well our awesome teacher yelled,
I’m as proud as a birdy,
That you learned the longer hand,
On the 6 makes a :30,
We washed our muddy hands
In our shiny classroom sink,
That made our teacher happy and she gave us all a wink,
Let’s have another recess,
That starts at 12 O’Clock,
Another half hour we were really all in shock!
Another Recess? SWEET!

It wasn’t 12 O’clock it was 12:30,
Big hand on the six,
We were really very dirty!
Big hand on the 6,
And we knew that it meant 30
Between the 12 and 1
We saw the little hand go,
Recess was over and we screamed, “Oh No!”
OH NO!

Well our awesome teacher yelled,
I’m as proud as a birdy,
That you learned the longer hand,
On the 6 makes a :30,
We washed our muddy hands
In our shiny classroom sink,
That made our teacher happy and she gave us all a wink,
Let’s have another recess,
That starts at 1 O’Clock,
Another half hour we were really all in shock!
Another Recess? SWEET!

It wasn’t 1 O’clock it was 1:30,
Big hand on the six,
We were really very dirty!
Big hand on the 6,
And we knew that it meant 30
Between the 1 and 2,
We saw the little hand go,
Recess was over and we screamed, “Oh No!”
OH NO!

Well our awesome teacher yelled,
I’m as proud as a birdy,
That you learned the longer hand,
On the 6 makes a :30,
We washed our muddy hands
In our shiny classroom sink,
That made our teacher happy and she gave us all a wink,
Let’s have another recess,
That starts at 2 O’Clock,
Another half hour we were really all in shock!
Another Recess? SWEET!

It wasn’t 2 O’clock it was 2:30,
Big hand on the six,
We were really very dirty!
Big hand on the 6,
And we knew that it meant 30
Between the 2 and 3,
We saw the little hand go,
Recess was over and we screamed, “Oh No!”
OH NO!

Well our awesome teacher yelled,
I’m as proud as a birdy,
That you learned the longer hand,
On the 6 makes a :30,
We washed our muddy hands
In our shiny classroom sink,

That made our teacher happy and she gave us all a wink,
You really, really know how to tell the passing time,
You know your half hours, and your hours just fine,
I’d give you much more recess,
But there’s something I must say,
We’re truly out of all the hours in the school day….
