Match Clock Face with Written Time


The goal of this task is to match clock faces with written times. You can extend this task by writing out the time in words (e.g., “eight o’clock”) or by matching with times of the day (e.g., matching a clock face showing noon to “lunch time”).


  • Cards with clock faces
  • Cards with written times
  • Container
  • Student instructions


  • Fill in the clock faces and make corresponding cards with the times written on them. You may want to consider laminating the cards.
  • Put them in a container (e.g., plastic bin or bag)


  • Start with a few cards to match. As your student becomes proficient, you can increase the number of cards to match to lengthen the amount of time your student remains engaged in this task.
  • This task can be presented in a number of different ways. You can use a Velcro board to help your student organize the cards or use paperclips to hold the pairs together.
