Telling Time

??????????????????????????????????????

I got a new question this week from a friend.  She has a five year old who is really wanting to learn to tell time.  Here are a few things that worked well for us.

We started out doing skip counting by 5’s

5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40-45-50-55-60

We put them on blank white index cards and made up a song while we sang.

Then we did a fun paper plate clock, similar to this one from Frugal Fun for Boys

Paper Plate Clock Activity for Learning to Tell Time

We also worked in a Kumon Telling Time workbook.  That’s what worked well for us.

What worked well for your kids?
