Learning To Tell Time

We are working on learning to tell time this week. We are lucky to have a large clock floor game, and the kids are having so much fun learning with it. This game can be played in several ways. One way is to throw the big dice and then move the hands to the correct positions.

Here is my 5 year old learning with the game. She was very pleased with herself. I never imagined teaching kids to tell time would be so easy and fun. Another way this game can be played is using the kids as the hands of the clock. 

This is such a great way for my hands-on and very physical child to learn. She had down the concept in less than four turns. It will be interesting to see if it sticks in her mind. We will be exploring lots of ways to learn time this week, including good old worksheets. It sure is nice having this game to get them learning with a light and fun attitude. It is called Time Mat by Learning Resources.

Blessings, Dawn
