This activity is a fun way to practice time and is a great product to work on at home!
There are two sizes for each watchband, in color or black and white. Print the pages out that you are going to use, on the front side only. The thicker the paper, the more durable they will be. If possible laminate the watches before the children cut them out.
Cut the watch and hand pieces apart. Use Velcro pieces to be able to fasten and refasten the watch around the wrist.
Use a hole punch to punch the holes in the big and little hands, so they will move easily around the brad. Attach the hands to the watch using a brad, so the hands can turn to the correct time.
**If extra reinforcement is needed, attach a tiny piece of tape to the back of each hand and the watch. Hole punch through the tape before attaching with the brad.
The black and white watches can be colored.
There is also an 8 1/2" by 11" clock with hands to use as a teaching tool or have each student make one to keep and use for practice. The clock will work with a paper plate too.
Review the concept of hour, half hour, quarter and three quarter hours using the big clock template.
Put the time cards in a pile upside down. Have a child draw a card and demonstrate on their watch the time on the card.
It can easily be adapted for the littlest learner by only using the concepts introduced.
