Teaching children to watch the clock is necessary for children to understand the concept of time. From there, children know how to manage time effectively and form the habit of being on time. However, teaching children to watch the clock is not easy. This requires a lot of patience from parents as well as applying the right method to teach children to watch the clock. Let's refer to the tips for teaching your baby to read the clock through the following article.

Teaching Children to Count

Before teaching your child to read the clock on time, parents need to teach them to practice counting fluently from 1 to 60. This may take some time for the child to remember and count the numbers in the correct order without making mistakes. Parents, let your baby practice counting every day through familiar activities such as counting toy cars, counting fruits, arranging dishes for members...

After children can count from 1 to 60, parents begin teaching them to divide 5 consecutive numbers into 12 small groups. Only then will children gradually become familiar with the system and rules of numbers on the clock.

Teach Your Baby to Get Familiar with the Sessions of the Day

Teaching your baby to get used to the times of the day is also an effective secret when teaching your baby to watch the clock. Parents can begin to help children distinguish between light and dark. Then expand children's concepts of morning, noon, afternoon, evening and night. To help children visualize easily, parents should stick to specific activities such as:

- Morning: Baby wakes up, brushes teeth and washes face.

- Noon: Baby has lunch with the family.

- Afternoon: Baby and parents walk in the park.

- Evening: Baby brushes teeth, washes face, then goes to bed.

Gradually, parents teach their children more about early morning and late afternoon. Regularly like that, children will become aware of the time periods of the day.

Make Handmade Clocks with Children

Parents, let your children make a paper clock with their children so they can learn more about the basic structure of a clock. This handmade watch consists of a large enough circle, the surface of which is divided evenly into 12 parts. Then, parents guide the child to fill in the numbers from 1 to 12. And apply exercises from 1 to 60 in 5 units/time so that the child divides the number into small lines to represent the number of seconds. Every 5th unit is a large line in the set of numbers from 1 to 12.

Teach Your Baby to Tell the Time

Also with the handmade clock they made, parents used 2 strips of paper, 1 short, 1 long, to represent the hour and minute hands. Then start teaching your baby to watch the clock using time stamps with zero minutes such as 1 hour 00 minutes, 2 hours 00 minutes, 3 hours 00 minutes... To make it easier for your baby to remember the time, parents can Take familiar examples like at 7 p.m., the child watches cartoons, at 9 p.m., the child goes to bed...

Teach Your Baby to Learn Minutes and Seconds

After teaching your baby to look at a clock with time markers, parents begin to guide your baby to learn about seconds and minutes. First, parents teach children to observe and distinguish different types of clock hands: The short hand is the hour hand, the long hand is the minute hand, and the second hand is the fastest hand. Next, explain to your child the relationship between these three types of clock hands. Children just need to grasp that when the second hand rotates once, the minute hand moves once and when the minute hand rotates once, the hour hand will move to the adjacent larger number on the clock face.

Hopefully the above ways to teach your baby to watch the clock are really useful for parents with young children. Parents, please be patient to teach your children how to tell the time, manage time effectively and appreciate time more.
