Teaching clocks are used by educators and parents alike to develop the motor skills, social growth, emotional growth, and cognitive ability of children. Learning to tell time is one of the few basic skills that are learned by kids in their initial developmental years. Teaching clocks come with exciting ways to make something as common as the concept of time come across as fascinating for children. The buyer can go through a hard time choosing a teaching clock which is the most appropriate for a child and acts as a catalyst in the incremental process of time teaching.
Commit to both intellect and interaction
There are many different kinds of teaching clocks available with creative concepts like puzzle clocks that will make children understand the anatomy of a clock and arrangement of numbers in it, boards installed with clock, calendar and days of the week, matching the hour hand with the time placard clocks, and many more. The buyer should recognize what the kid enjoys the most so that he does not stop taking an interest in the clock before learning the complete concept. It should also be ensured by the buyer that the clock is not too complicated for a child and is age-appropriate.
Material safety considerations
Usually, some clocks come with small removable parts. If the child is really young, the buyer should not get a toy with small pieces as they can be swallowed by children and pose major health threats. Teaching clocks come in many different materials like plastic, wood, and cardboard. Plastic can contain some harmful chemicals and toxins like bisphenol-A and BPA, which are not usually found in wood and cardboard. Wood is the safest option out there, but if the buyer wants to buy plastic, they should check the product’s safety warnings. Cardboard is considered equally safe as wood but comparatively less durable than wood and plastic.
Other factors and details
Teaching clocks are said to be a great gifting option as well. When gifting a teaching clock, the buyer should go with a gender-neutral option and a less complicated teaching clock if they do not know about the child. The buyer should make sure that the game comes with an instruction manual and mentions the age bar.
