Printable Practice Clock

Early this morning we "fell back" from Daylight Saving Time.  This is a perfect opportunity to start thinking about telling time.  When my daughter was a preschooler, I created a printable practice clock for her.  The hands and numbers are color coded to help little ones differentiate between hours and minutes more easily.  Now I'm making it available for you to download for free.

  1. Print the clock, and the number sheet.  
  2. Cut out the hands and numbers.  I recommend laminating all the pieces so that they last longer, but it's not required.  
  3. Punch a hole in the end of each hand and attach them to the clock face using a paper fastener or brad.  

If you want to have the ability to attach the digital clock numbers to the practice board, I suggest either attaching a small piece of Velcro to the number spaces and the backs of each of the numbers, or printing the numbers on a magnet sheet and posting the practice board on your refrigerator.  What tips and ideas can you offer to others for teaching little ones to tell time?
