About Our Telling Time Worksheets

What time is it? Time to grab some worksheets on telling time from BusyTeacher.org! Your ESL students are sure to love the 111 worksheets we offer - and they cover every aspect of telling time in English, from ordinal numbers, to expressions like “half-past,” to times associated with certain parts of a daily routine. By the time you’ve helped your class work through some of these worksheets, they’ll be telling time in English like they’ve done it all their lives.

Telling the time in English is one of the most crucial skills for lower-level ESL students to learn. Asking and telling the time are two of the most common uses for beginner English - and they’re also helpful skills for ESL students to have as they travel in English-speaking countries. Plus, telling time helps them practice their number vocabulary, as well as important measurement words like “half” and “quarter,” as well as basic prepositions like “from” and “to.”

Even so, teaching your ESL students how to tell time can seem tricky at first. They know their numbers, sure - but every culture describes positions on the clock face a little differently. Some use 24-hour clocks instead of 12-hour - and some don’t have specific words for times like “noon” and “midnight.” How can you help your students keep all this straight? With BusyTeacher.org’s 111 worksheets on telling time, of course! Beginner students will love the bright pictures and easy-to-read words on these worksheets - which makes them great supplements for your textbook’s more detailed coverage of time-telling. They help to make the topic of telling time a little friendlier, and give your visual-thinking students some images on which to hang the new time-related vocabulary they’re learning.

Some of our worksheets come with simple fill-in-the-blank questions and answers, which makes them ideal for use as quizzes and quiet exercises. Others provide frameworks for active games, to get your students out of their seats and thinking about time-telling in a playful way. Still others are perfect for printing out and using as posters, so your class will always have a visual reference point when you call on them to speak about a particular time.

The diversity of these resources comes thanks to our international community of ESL teachers, who’ve made these worksheets and posters available for free, after testing them and finding them useful in their own classrooms around the world. Every worksheet you see here is completely free to download, print, and share however you like.
