Melissa and Doug Wooden Shape Sorting Clock that was given to Buddy when he was about 19 months old. I've used this clock to help teach colors, numbers, shapes, and now how to tell time. Recently, Buddy and I have been working on how to identify the hours of the day. We've been working on learning that the minute hand goes on 12 and the hour hand goes on the number of the hour. Buddy announced this afternoon that it was 7 o'clock and he had positioned the hands correctly. I cheered for him then announced "7 o'clock means time to get ready for bed!" He quickly moved the hands and then proclaimed, "Oh wait, it is only 6 o'clock!". Buddy's quick wit amazes me most days.
Shape Sorting Clock will stay in our toy box for a long time.
