Fun activity of reading A Clock


2 days ago in the morning before Reuven going to school, He is so excited about reading time the moment he woke up. I guess must be the reason of the new clock we chosen and yesterday it was on our wall. He is on the spark of trying to read the time rite. 🙂


i notice his learning and understanding of clock are getting more and more better from the previous practise.

He has show sign of understanding and meaning what is o’clock and abit of ’30’ min as a starter,  and i leave the rest next time. As my goal is for him to familiar  more on the clock’s hand recognition especially start with the short hand.

He is more focused and attentive. he is able to understand well what are the short and long hands…

Daddy : when I said 5.30 , should short hand point to 5 or long hand ?

Reuven : short hand !

daddy : very good ! how about 30 ?

Reuven : long hand , then he show me by adjusting the clock.

after some practise, I feel that he feel a bit bored , I start to introduce 15 /30/45 mins.

daddy: how about 3.15?

Reuven : he look stun, and stress . Haha and can see his mind not focus and lost as i purposely break the pattern after a few practise . then he try to do test and look at me whenever he complete or doing a move. To check if ‘ Dad expression’ is correct.

Daddy: Reuven , no worries, be confident too, you are doing great, just focus what you have learn, remember if it is 5.30, which hand should be point to 5?

Reuven: short hand!


keep repeating the theory and sequence. then till he is an expert ( i feel he is bored wanted more attention) till he purposely get it wrong to get my funny expression. hhaha..

maybe soon must share with him what is quarter and half  to express time.

i am sure he will be able to read time better and better and i am sure in the school, he also will practise with teacher, lately i even hear him saiding out loud from Jan to Dec. 🙂  time flies, big boy already… 🙂
