Fun Ways To Teach Children How To Tell Time

In today’s digital world children can almost get away without knowing how to tell time on a “real” clock! Although that might be the case, we still want to give our children all the basic life skills that we were taught at that age… time telling included! Watch how enjoyable it can be to rotate the hands on a teaching clock and practice a new found skill.
With Telly The Teaching Time Clock, your child/student will learn to tell both analog and digital time using two quiz modes. In the learning mode, Telly teaches time in five minute increments by moving the hands and updating the LCD screen. In the quiz mode, Telly asks your child to move the hands on its face to match the time displayed on its screen. Telly also features a real working clock, night-light. This sure makes learning how to tell time lots of fun!
For a game format, try the Mix and Match Clocks Game by Smethport. It is geared for all ages, especially young children since no reading is required! You can now teach your child concepts of time such as: on the hour, half past, quarter past, before the hour, and after the hour.
If your child is the scientific type, he will surely love the First Time Clock by Fascinations. Your child can now assemble his own clock as he learns how gears function together to measure the progression of time.  This  fascinating and educational kit explains the scientific nature of clocks, making this a unique and interactive project.
There are so many fun ways to teach children how to tell time so quit the frustration and you’ll be sure to attract your child’s or students attention.
