The Intention of My Blog

Welcome, my beloved readers!

In case you're wondering, it's not a typo up there for you see the definition of goodly is:

used as an adjective to describe something
1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I am a mother who home educates her children; I would be pleased if you'd look around. You never know if I might have something to your liking. I've blogged about different topics. I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Please remember to subscribe to my blog, using any variety of methods, which are below to the right, including Facebook.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

How to Teach About Time

Cutout match ups of clocks

Teaching time can be lots of fun.  The concept of time is complex but doable.  Hands on materials, worksheets, and actual clocks can prove useful to teach a young child how to tell time.  Because I have taught my oldest from a young age, I have a collection of useful teaching tools to use with my youngest child.  

I found the clock puzzle many years ago.  Unfortunately, I can't find the website where I found it.  The cutout match up was in a workbook.  I cut it out so that I could use it with more than one child.  The two top manipulatives I bought many years ago but found websites where they are available.

Following are some websites where you can find worksheets to teach time:

Well, thanks for viewing this entry about teaching the concept of time.  I hope I've given you some ideas for teaching about time, one of the first math concepts for the elementary grades.

On Tuesday, I will provide a list of websites that 
provide games and "time" products.  
Stay tuned!

How about you, my readers?  How have you taught your children about time?  Have you ever considered using real clocks, manipulatives, and worksheets to teach early childhood learning concepts?  Your children can benefit from using a hands on method to learn.

May God bless us all with His wisdom and peace, as we teach your children.
