This lesson helps children learn to tell the time and use the present continuous.

Rachael Ro

In this lesson, learners will be introduced to telling the time in English. They will practise telling the time with a variety of activities, and will make their own clock. They will then watch a story about children around the world doing different things at different times. Finally, they will practise using the present continuous to describe their actions and other children's actions as they mime.


To develop and practise:

  • vocabulary: time words, various actions
  • structure: present continuous
  • curricular work: telling the time
  • integrated skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing
