How to Teach Your Child to Tell Time?
How do we know the time these days? Mostly looking at the cell phone. My son is so used to digital clocks, that it was very tricky and hard for him to learn this topic. I believe telling time on an analog clock is still essential, and it will help us to understand how seconds, minutes, hours, and day works.
What We Used
- Analog clock
I recommend using a real analog clock, not a toy clock. Some toy clock shorthand doesn’t move like an actual clock. We used an old alarm clock we have at home.
