Have your children been interested in learning about time? I’m not just talking about interest in how time works, and how long something lasts. With so much digital technology around our fingertips today, a lot of children don’t even see real clocks or watches anymore. It is so important to teach your kids how to read a clock, or watch and not just the digits on a phone. Free worksheets that teach telling time will be a huge help for children that need extra practice or get confused.
I have a daughter that loves math. Anything with numbers in it excites and delights her. It is such a blessing to me because none of my other children were like this. I still remember the first day that we opened her math book and there were pictures of clocks in it. My sweet girl was blown away that clocks were actually math! It was pretty funny and she was so excited to see the numbers on the clock and learn how to count them. She couldn’t believe that skip counting to read a clock was using math in an everyday situation outside of school.
Math Worksheets to help with Teaching Time:
There are lots of different homeschool curricula out there. They all introduce telling time in different levels and grades. If you have a child that is eager to learn now and it hasn’t been introduced in their school work yet you can start at any time if you think that they are ready.
Some children may be confused by learning how to tell time. Especially if they are not used to needing to look at time on a regular basis. They may not have mastered skip counting yet, or learning all the numbers. If they are used to seeing digital time every day on technology and devices the different clock hands could be frustrating to them. I love using lots of hands on clock manipulatives, as well as worksheets for my struggling learners. Worksheets are great for children that need to practice reading and writing and seeing right in front of them.
