Tell the Time | Analogue Clock
This analogue clock face is broken into 12 sections to help kids understand how the hour hand moves. You can either use pencils/crayons as clock hands or cut a hole in the middle and make a clock hand using a split pin. If you print it off in colour, the numbers match the following section and this helps children to understand that, while the hour hand is in the red section, it is still 'something past 1' even if it is closer to the two.

I like to make the numbers into little doors with the 5 times table behind to help the children get used to the meaning of a minute hand. Because the 5 times table is hidden , they can use it as a checking mechanism, rather than relying on reading the numbers.
