One of my small group coaching clients had some older children, and she wanted to teach them how to read an analog clock. She asked for some clock printables, so I created this Montessori-Inspired Clock Mini Bundle for her! Here’s everything that’s inside:
- Parts of a Clock Face 3-Part Cards
- Large Blank Clock Faces with hours, minutes, 5 minutes, and 15 minutes options
- Small Blank Clock Faces with hours, minutes, 5 minutes, and 15 minutes options
- Reading Hours on a Clock Information Sheet
- Reading Hours on a Clock 3-Part Cards
- Reading Time in Real Life 3-Part Cards
Let’s take a closer look!
The Parts of a Clock Face 3-Part Cards have the hours, minutes, hour hand, and minute hand isolated in red. This is where you should start when you’re trying to teach your child to read an analog clock, because these are the key elements your child will need to know in order to go further.
The next step is to use the Reading Hours on a Clock Information Sheet & 3-Part Cards. I’ve broken down the clock into hour segments in a Montessori color-coded clock. This clock shows that whenever the hour and falls on a certain slice of the clock, the hour part of that time stays the same. For example, if the hour hand is anywhere within the red slice of the clock, the time is 1:XX, where the XX stands for the minutes.
The blank clock face pages are for practicing drawing different times on. I like to put these in a dry erase sleeve so they can be reused over and over again.
The Reading Time in Real Life 3-Part Cards can be used to practice reading the time on these photographs of real clocks, then matching the appropriate times. This would be the final step in the process, and a helpful review/assessment tool once your child has mastered the rest.
These printables are best for children ages 5-10 years old, and you can get the whole Montessori-Inspired Clock Mini Bundle for just $5!
