To tell time to the 5 minutes on an analog clock in third grade, follow these steps:

Look at the long hand (the minute hand) on the clock. Each number on the clock represents 5 minutes. For example, if the long hand is pointing at the number 3, it means it is 15 minutes past the hour.

Observe the short hand (the hour hand) on the clock. The hour hand tells you the hour. If it is pointing directly at a number, that is the exact hour. If it is in between two numbers, you can estimate the hour based on which number it is closer to.

Combine the information from the long hand and the short hand to determine the time. For example, if the long hand is pointing at the number 6 and the short hand is pointing at the number 2, it means it is 25 minutes past 2 o’clock.
Remember to count by fives when reading the long hand and to consider the hour indicated by the short hand. With practice, you will become more comfortable telling time to the 5 minutes on an analog clock.
