Learning Resources Big Time 12-Hour Student Clock
The 12-Hour Student Learning Clock is a great way to help kids grasp the concepts of time-telling. Hidden gears maintain correct hour and minute relationships. Durable plastic student clock is made for small hands (just 5″ in diameter) and has easy-to-read hour and minute markings. The clock is equipped with a removable stand in the back that can enable the clock to stay up while learning to read time or lay flat for storage.
Why an analog clock in a digital world?
Learning to tell time using analog clocks can be more challenging than learning to read digital clocks. However, children’s understanding of the cyclical nature of time is strengthened using the analog format. Easy-to-read hour (red) and minute (blue) markings and color-coded clock hands help students differentiate, providing crucial support. Because of its small size, the Student Learning Clock provides the opportunity for children to learn to tell and write time in a hands-on way. Let them experiment with the hands and identify the numbers before moving into teaching time concepts.
Observe time in the world around you …
The Student Learning Clock is a great tool for introducing children to the basics of telling time: the hour and minute hand, the cycle of time, equivalent intervals, AM and PM. Once they’ve mastered the basics, challenge them to think about time in their environment. “How do we know the correct time?” We can look at a watch or clock, but what other factors indicate the time of day? Use problem-solving skills and deductive reasoning to help children understand time.
