A Teacher's Idea - and a good one! This is a very simple, low-cost way of learning how to read the time in digital AND analogue. We'd suggest building it into the daily routine, asking your child to show you what times they usually do things; or even alongside a working clock - set a time on the learning clock, and when the real clock matches it, it's time for a treat!
If I say, "I am a teacher". They go "Boop!" and use their pointer fingers to act out making a period. If I say, "What day is it?". They go "Hmmmm?" and use their pointer to trace a question mark in the air. If I say something like, "Today is my birthday!" they shout "Oh yeah!" and use their pointer to trace an exclamation point in the air. Last, if I give a command ("Go to your room!") they say "Right now!" and use their pointer to make an exclamation point.
