## Why Do Strong Maths Students Underperform on Standardised Tests?

Have you ever noticed that some of your strongest maths students still struggle with showing their skills on standardised tests? It’s not the numbers and equations that give them trouble; it’s likely something unexpected: reading comprehension. Even though these students are great at maths, they often need help understanding what a maths problem asks them to do or to find the important information hidden in long paragraphs. That’s where we come in!

## Maths Stories Help Students Learn to How Tell Time

Our Telling Time Math Stories are crafted to enhance students’ reading skills while reinforcing students’ abilities to tell time to the nearest hour, half hour, quarter hour, and 5-minute increments. By seamlessly integrating reading comprehension exercises with real-world scenarios, these maths worksheets help familiarise your students with how to comprehend and approach word problems confidently.

Included in this worksheet pack are Telling Time worksheets, including

• My Baby Brother – Telling Time to the Hour
• Soccer Practice – Telling Time to the Half-Hour and Quarter-Hour
• The Baseball Game – Telling Time to the Half Hour and Quarter Hour
• Snow Storm – Telling Time to 5 Minutes
• The School Nurse – Telling Time to 5 Minutes

On each worksheet, students will read a short story about a sequence of events. They will then draw hands on the clocks to show the times mentioned in the story. We have included an answer key for easy grading.
