Teaching how to tell time to kids can be a real challenge as telling time can be confusing and tricky at times 🙂
I mean, real tricky.
Starting from the basics, like counting the numbers and identifying the hands of the clock and moving on to advanced time telling with calculations for how many minutes past or to a certain hour and for how many minutes did a particular activity occur, this time telling activity can leave your child puzzled if not done gradually and properly.
These days I am busy teaching my younger one how to tell the time…He gets it all mixed up and here is what he has made in the clock when I asked him to show a quarter to 7 🙂
This little colorful clock is part of a Time Learning Kit by EARLY WORKSHOP, that a friend gave me and which I have started using to teach time telling to my own son now.
Appropriate for children of all ages, it comes with a wide number of flash cards to show to the kids, with an analog clock on one and it’s digital time on the other side.
This clock did an amazing work with the time teaching activity that I was doing. Learning got filled with fun and the excitement to learn something new doubled because of it. A must have item in the house or school if you have kids around and you have to teach them something new everyday.
