Hi Lappy,

This may strike as a stupid question, but then again, maybe not.  I am using a MAC and for days I have been looking through the forum and would like to post something.  However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to post something.  Even in the Parent's Lounge to introduce myself.  Where do I write the text to intro myself?!?!?   huh

Is there a link to "how to use" forum somewhere, if so, please send me the link. 

Thanks!

Hi parents!

I discovered Brillkids today, as I was looking for insights and advice about methods for teaching my 3 year old daughter how to read time, how to understand the notion of 'time left ( before going to bed, ;-). I ran across a time-teaching watch apparently using pictograms instead of digits or hands.   Anybody knows of this method?   Cheers. Daphne.     Here is their website : www.watch-kids.com

I ran across a time-teaching watch apparently using pictograms instead of digits or hands.   Anybody knows of this method?   Cheers. Daphne.     Here is their website : www.watch-kids.com


Hi Daphne,

I would not recommend teaching a child something that needs to be unlearned. Teaching a child to tell time using pictograms rather than numbers is just slowing down when they will learn to tell real time and cluttering their mind with useless knowledge.

Telling time is quite easy, and given enough exposure to a standard analog clock, many kids will pick it up. At three there is no reason not to buy your daughter a simple watch (white face, black minute and hour hands and preferably no second hand) and to show her what time it is. All four of my kids can tell time on a standard clock to the quarter hour, which is accurate enough for preschool aged kids.

Start with on the hour. Point out to your daughter on her watch or a wall clock every hour. "It's 9 o'clock. We know that because the hour hand is pointing to the 9, and the minute hand is pointing to the twelve." etc. Depending on how consistent you are and how quickly she grasps things, she could pick it up in a week.

Then move to the half hour. Tell her what time it is on the half hours. "It's nine thirty. We know that because the hour hand just left the 9 and the minute hand is pointing to the 6." You don't need to keep telling her the time on the hour unless you want to. You can also start asking her what hour she thinks it is.

Continue until you're happy with how accurate she is. Knowing that 2:10 is nearly quarter after 2 is good enough for me, but I have friends that taught their children (under 4) to the minute.

Hope this helps you decide!

It sounds like a great toy but I wouldn't teach them to learn to tell time that way.
The best way I've found with my girls is to first to teach them to count by 5's.
You can make up little games, sings songs, find some skip counting CD's ( if creativity isn't something that comes naturally to you), Once they understand how to count by 5's. Then, and only then will they understand how to learn to tell time. 
I would get a Judy clock and teach time that way. Practice everyday by moving the hands and counting by 5's.

hi, thanks for creating this site. I work with a friend of mine and we are giving english education to poor children near our house by running free educational centres for them. i've just joined your site today and everything is so confusing here. My apologies for saying this, but its verydifficult to navigate. will come back again after two weeks as i will be out of my city on some work. Thanks once again. Maybe then the site may be easier to understand. Thanks, Neeraj
