Visual and memorization cues are creative ways to teach kids to tell time and help them grasp complex concepts associated with reading analog clocks, according to the Guardian Teachers Network. Popular techniques include learning the five different times tables with song, and listing time on worksheets that display clock faces.
Many games are available to help children master the basics of time-telling. O’clock Time Bingo and word cards match clock faces to vocabulary that corresponds with various times around the hour. These types of activities accommodate whole-class teaching or use at home by parents and children, notes The Guardian Teacher Network.
