Description

What’s the time now?  When you hear this question, you know that the time is right to start teaching the concept of time to the young child.  They want to copy their elders and be able to understand what it means when you say “in a minute”…  The Clock Activity comes in a variety of forms; this one is the starting point; the o’Clock of time.  Introduce this activity, after the child has had the concrete experience of numbers 1-12.  Only once they have grasped the abstract understanding of using symbols to reflect numbers, can they begin to learn how to tell the time.

How do children understand time?

Young children may not understand “time”, but they most certainly grasp the fundamental sensorial meaning of time.  They understand actions, and movements.  They consider time by, how long (or short) it will be, and how important, it is to them.  “Time to wake up, to eat, sleep, to go to the park or to work.  Many parents/guardians say, “we will leave in 5 minutes”.  Time in numbers, and minutes is meaningless to the young child.  Actions taken, places time into a concept they can understand, i.e. “we will leave after you fasten your shoes, and I put the dog into the garden”
