Start on tellng time your child is hungry and impatient with the speed of mealtime preparations, point to the large hand of the clock and say to her, “We will have dinner when this big hand gets to the bottom (or the top) of the clock.”
Point to where the hand will be as you say this.
Then make every effort to meet this prediction accurately.
If she is not familiar with the clock, you will have to explain that the hand does move, but too slowly for her to see it.
Don’t try to teach her hours and minutes at first. This is difficult even for some first-graders to un­derstand.
However, by kindergarten many children will understand the concept of hours.
