LEARNING NUMBERS AND TELLING THE TIME THROUGH PLAY
Suitable for day nurseries, preschools, primary schools.
Six teaching clocks with moveable hands
15 cm diameter
Each teaching clock with twelve coloured pegs with numbers printed on them:
1 – 12 on the front
13 – 0 on the reverse
As soon as children know the first twelve numbers, they can play at
arranging the pegs with numbers printed on them clockwise in the holes,
in the correct order. Using the clock hands, they can learn first the
hours and then half past, quarter past and quarter to, followed finally
by the minutes. Later this can be continued with the numbers 13 to 0,
for the 24-hour clock. These numbers are printed on the reverse of the
corresponding pegs 1 – 12.
The small teaching clocks are designed for children to practise on and learn by themselves.
