Tip 1: How to learn to tell time

When a child goes to school, he willy-nilly have to learn to use the clock, because in school lessons begin at a certain time , last certain time and a certain same time end.In addition, many first graders already attend additional classes that need to keep pace, and parents are not always able to follow behind it.Therefore, teach the child to navigate in time does not need to start on September 1 but much earlier.
you need
  • clock Arrow
  • watches with one arrow
  • Hourglass
Teach your child to navigate the time from birth.The baby has to learn to distinguish between day and night.Younger preschoolers readily available concept of "morning" and "evening", for three years he can already learn how time of the year for what is coming.Senior preschooler knows the days of the week, the months, the concept of "before dinner" and "after dinner."Gradually enter into the consciousness of the child's time designation.When the alarm rings at seven, show the child where there are at this
the clock.Does not require that the baby immediately understood.But time , when to get up, eat lunch or go for a walk, even three year olds can remember.
older preschoolers learn to navigate by the hour.Of course, you first need to learn the numbers and learn to compare the quantity of items.The child should have understood that the 3 - it is more than 2, and 12 - more than 1, 2, 3, and all the other numbers that he sees on the dial.The child should have a bit of mental arithmetic.
Make timepiece.First, let it be with only one dial clockwise.Minute division can also not yet mark.Explain to your child that the arrow on this clock goes from one number to the other in exactly an hour.Show the clock, which is what the shooter.Encourage your child to watch when the little hand of the clock moves with edinichki to deuce, and move the arrow to the paper model.Remind your child where there is a short hand of the clock, when it comes from the garden or go to the gym.
Show that the short needle is moving gradually and does not jump immediately from one digit to another.Ask the kid on toy clock to show what a "little more than an hour," or "a little less than six."Explain that the needle may be in the middle between the two figures - it would be "half of the fifth" or "half of the ninth."Repeat this until the baby is no longer confused.
Tell your child how much time now, and have the show on the model, as will happen in two, three, six hours.And how much time was three hours ago?
Divide the distance between the model numbers as it is divided into these hours.Have your child count the number obtained by dividing all around and between adjacent numbers.Explain that indicates the length of the arrow on the present hour, and make the same arrow to the model.Very well, if you have at hand an hourglass from which sand is poured in 5 minutes.You can offer your child to watch, when a long needle would be exactly on the figure.Put sand hour, tell me, how many minutes the sand falls out, and ask to see what happens with the big arrow when all the sand peresypletsya.
Explain that long needle traverses the circle exactly one hour.The beginning of each hour - the number 12, which is why it is at the top.And how much time will pass, if the long needle pass all only half way?Where is this half?Explain that each half of the dial can be divided in half still receive quarters.Where are they located?How to tell if it was already five hours but then took a long arrow to the number 3?
If a child is well understood that on the face of 60 divisions, which represent 60 minutes, you can try to explain that half of 60 - 30. Where is the thirtieth division?And half of the 30 - is how much?When a child realizes that quarter of an hour - it's 15 minutes, it is possible to explain that on the face of each quarter of an hour is divided into three parts.How many minutes in one-third of such?One third of fifteen minutes - 5 minutes, that is, the distance traveled by the large arrow between the numbers.If is now four hours, how much time will be five minutes?A twenty?
Explain to your child that when it took only fifteen or twenty minutes after three - say it is fifteen or twenty minutes past three.And if four to twenty minutes is not enough, they say: "Without the twenty-four."
Once the child learns to confidently rely on mechanical watches, explain to him the meaning of the numbers on the digital clock.Typically, the child quickly learns it.

you often late? time playing hide and seek with you and constantly lost somewhere?You are not alone.The shelves of bookstores are filled with rows of textbooks and manuals on time management.But before you start to manage time, you need to learn to identify.The easiest way to look at the clock.But what if you forgot them at home?

Do not wait if the child does not immediately learn to navigate on the dial.Repeat this exercise slowly and steadily.
