Telling Time

The Montessori stamp printout is usually presented when your child knows how to tell time. You can start with the whole hours first.
On the printout we usually write out times such as six o’clock, four o’clock, etc. Your child draws the long hand on 12 and small hand on 6, and so on. . Lastly, we introduced 12 o’clock, since both hands are drawn to 12.
Next, introduce half hours, quarter hours, and minutes.
Also, you can reverse the exercise and have your child write out the time from the filled in printout.
Four and five year olds love this activity.
