Tick tock, tick tock. That's the sound of the working clocks built by the Pre-K Counts class at LVCC's Judith Chase Early Learning Center.
Time is a difficult concept for young children to understand. It's not something that can be seen or felt. By building a clock piece-by-piece, children have a tangible object representing time to explore.
In the class lesson, the children learned the names and uses for the hands on a clock. They identified which numbers made up a clock face. Time reading and counting make a great introduction to math skills.
The pre-kindergartners made imaginative use of telling time. They colored unique clock faces. They also discovered the basic mechanics of how a clock keeps ticking.
What time is it?
