Learning to Tell the Time

Telling the time from an analog clock doesn’t come naturally especially in this day when everything is digital.

Here, I created three sets of cards. The first set would be “5 minutes”, “10 minutes”, “a quarter” etc. The second¬†set would be “before”, “to”, “past”, “after”. The third set would be “2”, “5”, “9”, “noon”, “midnight”.

Together the three sets of cards creates a combination like “10 minutes to 9”. The analog clock acts as an aid for visualising what the time is.

If your kid is in P1-4, try getting him an analog watch and teach him how to read the time. It will help at least one chapter in Maths!
