|Clock face with numbers|
|Digital Alarm Clock|
Early this month, I wrote a blog entry about How to Tell Time. In it, I explained how I've used manipulatives to teach my children how to tell time. I also included websites where worksheets can be found to aid in teaching children how to tell time. This week, I wanted to provide some websites where you can find technological aids to teach children how to tell time.
Time for time website
Time for Friends website (Make sure to maximize screen for the game)
YouTube videos about time
Online clock manipulation
Souped Up Timers
Actual projects to make clocks
How about you, my readers? Have you ever used online games to teach about time? If so, did your children enjoy learning about clocks with the games? Or did they like using actual clocks? I think a virtual clock is a practical, economical method to learn about time. I believe in finding technological tools to help in the home school; I hope you would consider using technology in your schools, too.
