Have a Fun Time Learning How to Tell Time
Telling time is easy with enough practice, but learning how to do so can be frustrating for children who simply see a bunch of hash marks on a big circle. The two or three little hands slowly spinning around don’t add a lot of clarity for many children, and it doesn’t help that clocks are so fragile that they are not great interactive teaching tools. Let your child have some fun with telling time games that are not only easy to access with the click of a button, but easy to play with as well. A great place to start out with is telling time games that help your child develop their understanding of telling time in hour and a half increments on analog clocks. As your child works toward understanding how to read an analog clock, be sure to help them build their confidence with numbers through number games
. After they have mastered these first steps, playing telling time games on their phone, tablet, or computer will lead to an increasingly complex understanding of time.
