More Ways to Play and Learn:
- BEGINNER: With the child, count the red hour numbers around the outside of the clock. Then move just the hour hand around the clock face, stopping at each number to ask, What time is it now.
With the child, count (by 5s) the blue minute numbers around the outside of the clock. Then move just the blue minute hand and ask the child to tell you what minute number it is pointing to.
- Use the hands together to put together simple times. At the beginning, focus on one hour at a time. (For instance, you could demonstrate 1:00, 1:15, 1:30, 1:45, then 2:00, 2:15, and so on.) As the child gains confidence, move both hands with every turn to increase the challenge.
- INTERMEDIATE: Ask the child to count all the minutes on the clock, 1 - 60. Then challenge the child to count a range of numbers that you indicate. (For instance, counting 40 - 45 would go 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45. )
- Close the preview window, then place one of the time cards in the slot at the top of the clock so the digital format is showing. Ask the child to match the time shown using the clock hands. Then open the preview window to check the answer.
- Spread out all the time cards on a flat surface, with the digital format facing upward. Ask the child to place them in order from earliest to latest. Repeat the activity with the analogy side, or increase the challenge even more by mixing the formats together.
- ADVANCED: Challenge the child to approximate a real clock more precisely by positioning the hour hand partway between two numbers.
Choose two of the time cards and give them to the child. Ask the child to use the clock to figure out the time difference between the two.
- Talk about the child's usual daily routine, using real - life ideas to relate to the clock. For instance, you could say, At 8:05 in the morning, we put away our breakfast dishes and get ready to leave. Can you show me 8:05 on the clock. Add to the challenge by asking the child to recall the set times of recurring events, such as dinner or bedtime.
