Time is not an easy concept to grasp when you are a kid. For children, a minute seems to be so long, and an hour can be eternal. We invented a tool to measure and make sense of time, the clock. It is important for children to learn how to read a clock so they can have a visual aid to understand to notion of time. There are many resourceful games and toys designed to teach time. Some of the toy clocks can even be used to teach more than to read time such as the Sorting Clock. This toy clock and other clock toys teach children how to read time using analog system. A child moves the hands of the clock to learn how time works. A parent can point to specific time slots such 12’o clock so the child can recognize important hours of the day like morning, afternoon, and evening.

Moreover, teaching toy clocks such a Sorting Clock helps toddlers learn about numbers and counting. The Sorting Clock comes with detachable block numbers from one to twelve to help count the hours. Also, schooling with clocks toy can aid the child to learn how to measure seconds, minutes, and hours. A child learns to count to sixty moving the handles of the clock. Educators and parents can help the children count until they can do it by themselves. By moving the handle as a counting tool, every second a child moves the handle will add to the lesson different hands-on activity for children to learn from. Once mastered counting, educators and parents can teach how to add and subtract time.

Another feature of toy clocks such as the Sorting Clock is the use of colors and shapes to help children distinct the time. From one to twelve, each number is assigned a different shape and color. Not only helping learn about numbers but also teaching toddlers how to distinct colors and shapes. With the Sorting Clock, a child can play with the numbers in blocks by removing them from their assigned place and putting it back together. Toddlers can move around the blocks until they find the right space helping their motor skills and hand-eye coordination in the process. Also, it reinforces their knowledge of the clock and how to read time. With hand-on learning, toy clocks like Sorting Clocks makes counting seconds fun.
