Classroom Games about Telling the Time for Children

All the following games and activities for kindergarten, preschool and ESL students have been tried and tested in classrooms by The Magic Crayons, who are experienced teaching professionals. If you are planning a lesson to a theme, remember to check our Flash Cards, Crafts and Songs pages too.

1. His Bus Is Crazy

The Magic Crayons: Flash Cards
Time: 5 minutes
Receptive Language: instructions, various
Productive Language: flash card vocab
Game Explanation: Become a bus by ‘driving’ around the room, stopping to pick up students & only allowing them to ‘board’ (i.e. form a train behind you) if they can correctly identify a flash card. Repeat until all of the students are aboard. Ride around the room & crash dramatically into stuff as part of the big, crazy finale.

2. Wheelbarrow Race

The Magic Crayons: Flash Cards
Time: 5-8 minutes
Receptive Language: instructions, flashcard vocab
Productive Language: flashcard vocab
Game Explanation: In pairs, the students make wheelbarrows (one student supporting himself on his hands while his partner holds his ankles) & race to take or slap the flashcard you call out. Wacky crashing ensues, guaranteed.
