Waldorf Family Teaching Clock
You can enjoy the beautiful rainbow colours on this teaching clock as your child investigates the illustrations. The clock travels through a variety of activities, resonating with a child’s rhythm of the day.
It is worth asking children why the moon might be in the centre of the clock? Of course as adults we know the 12 hour clock will travel twice round the numbers in one day: but this concept is one worth exploring with children as they learn.
We have aligned the hands to point directly to the hours or minutes to help children tell one from the other. The minute and hour hand are also deliberately different colours to help differentiation.
We have included the numbers 1-60 to help children spot that 60 minutes are in one hour – but this can also be helpful when explaining the idea of seconds.
Finally we have written out a number of common phrases to tell the time around the outer edge, they could independently use these phrases to create a time sentence when they are ready.
Created on 9mm FSC approved sustainable garnicia plywood the hands are also Garnicia wood, held in place with a brass binding pin.
Recommended Age 3+ years. Warning! Not suitable for children under 36 months. Choking hazard due to small parts.
