Teaching kids about the concept of time is empowering, as they get a stronger sense of the past, present, future, and duration of events. Learning how to read and use the calendar can be fun.
Here are a couple of tips we use:
- We keep a calendar at the kids’ eye level, so they can read the months, days, and dates themselves. They can also interact with it by changing the date and adding notes for special events and appointments.
- We sing songs to engage the children and help the concepts become more memorable.
