Learning about time

The concept of time is very vague and hard for little children to understand.

We started with the seasons.
After reading the book “Skip through the seasons” by Stella Blackstone, a great interactive seek and find book, we discussed the seasonal changes in nature, what kind of clothes we wear, and activities we get involved into.
We sorted the pictures according to the seasons and made a “seasonal wheel” followed by each child’s presentation.

The days of the week are an important measure of time for children to understand.
Each day brings us something new. We made a book with our favorite activities for each day of the week and learned a song “Days of the week”, which is about different things we do each day.
Children arranged the pictures with the preschool activities according to the timetable and pasted them on the poster.
