Shape Sorting Clock
by Melissa & Doug
Our popular preschool-friendly clock gets a cool update! A larger face, exposed natural wood, and pops of vibrant color on match-able chunky pieces make for a fresh modern look . . . but the classic play value and top-quality construction remains the same. Kids love the color-coded minute and hour hands that spin around with a simple push. (No matter where they point, it's always time for learning and fun!) Children can match the colors, sort the shapes, and solve the puzzle as they manipulate the color blocks and turn the hands, building cognitive and motor skills and laying the groundwork for learning to tell time. Activities printed right on the box encourage interactive play, helping children begin to master early-learning concepts as they gain familiarity with the form of a clock and concepts of time.
Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
Remove the pieces from the clock. Have kids line them up in numerical order. Then ask them to line up pieces based on the number of sides.
Have kids match shapes of the same color. Help kids compare the members of each pair, describing what is similar and what is different.
Use the hands of the clock to point to a number and ask, "What time is it?" Have the child place the shape that fits, saying the number aloud.
