Episode 7 - Learning About Time

Show Notes

Post-it notes sequence to use with chant.
Since my last podcast, I have become a parent myself. My son is now five years old and has begun showing an interest in podcasting. Rather than beginning a new podcast with him, I thought we could revive this one and begin sharing some of the things that we do to enhance his learning at home.

Daily chart for packing bag.
I continue to teach full-time, and then come home to continue the learning journey with my son. So far he is going well with his education and seems to catch onto new concepts fairly easily.

Today we share with you a simple activity that can be used to practise the order of the months of the year. We also give a couple of examples of everyday sorts of things that you can do, including creating a chart for packing the school bag.

Useful online resources include:
Interactive Maths Games and Activities

One app my son found really good when he was younger is Hickory Dickory Dock by Mindshapes Limited.

Hi Penny,

My son also used Hickory Dickory Dock when he is still learning how to tell time. I may say that it is really helpful. Now that he can tell time, we use Dad's Worksheets. The website has worksheets for telling time and it is helpful too! I am confident that with the help of those two, my son will and can tell time faster. No need for him to use digital clocks. <3 <3 <3
