    We just did this this past week in fifth grade. I told my kids that they had to count on with the hours first, then count on with the minutes. I also used a clock to help them visualize the amount of elapsed time in the problems. If you don't have clocks in your classroom, you could make them out of paper plates, then design hands to go on with a brad. A lot of practice with real story situations that they can relate to helps.
