• Good morning! Today is Thursday, April 2nd and it is F Day, so we have Spanish.

Remember when we learned about the hour hand, I said that the hour hand is pushed along by the minute hand, So when the minute hand is on the 6, it has gone half way around the clock. So the hour hand has to be half way between the hour it is currently and the next hour it will be.  I will explain in the video,
