Learning to tell the time is an important rite of passage for young children, which helps the development of social and behavioral skills such as responsibility, time management and self-dependence.
Many parents find that when children have learned to read a clock they enjoy a greater awareness of the importance of passing time in their everyday lives, from having ‘two minutes to brush their teeth’ to understanding that screen time is 1 hour a day!
Our Clock Tracing Board features:
An Analogue clock face with the hours and minutes
- Digital clock with hours and minutes
- AM | PM
Minutes counting by 5's around the face (encouraging skip-counting) and a stroke representing the minutes in each 5 minute block.
- O'Clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to, to give an early introduction and understanding of fractions being that the clock is divided into quarters - each being a 15 minute block, making up a full hour.
Grab a chalkboard pen and have your child “set” the clock for different times. Or, do the reverse by setting it and asking them what time it is. Then have them convert that time to digital time in the space provided, and decide if the time of day is AM or PM, always offer hints to help them along and remember learning is meant to be fun so encourage all attempts.
