Waldorf Wooden Teaching Clock
- In stock, ready to ship
Bringing rhythm to a child's day is a wonderful way to establish family routines with this beautiful Teaching Clock from Waldorf Family.
This educational toy travels through a variety of activities, resonating with a child’s rhythm of the day. The moon is seated at the center of the clock as a way to explain how days and nights are separated by the rise and fall of the moon and sun.
Unlike a mechanical clock, children explore analog timekeeping by manually moving the clock hands. Clock hands are aligned to point directly to the hours or minutes and made in different colors to help children tell one from the other.
The numbers 1-60 help children spot that 60 minutes are in one hour, but also are there to help explain the idea of seconds.
Common phrases such as “half past” are written around the clock's edge to help a child describe their day and create a time sentence when they are ready.
A lovely and unique piece of art that will make a beautiful addition to any home or classroom!
Note: Wall hanging hardware is not included. This is a non-mechanical clock.
