Help Your Child Tell Time on an Analog Clock

There's more to telling time than memorizing the numbers on an analog clock. Help your child more fully grasp this skill by asking key questions about time. For example, ask how much time has elapsed with this question: "If we need to leave for school by 7:45 a.m., and it takes us ten minutes to get there, when will we arrive?" Or present the question from another angle by asking: "If it takes 25 minutes to drive to Aunt Sally's house, and we need to get there by 4:00 p.m., what time should we leave?"
