Lanterns are synonymous with Ramadan in the Muslim World. Here’s a fun activity for your Ramadan themed centers, Ramadan Telling Time Puzzles.

 

The idea behind this activity is to help children practice time telling because in Ramadan, Muslim people (parents) change their eating and working habits. Parents may be waking up before dawn for breakfast. They don’t eat through the day and then break their fast at sunset. Children look forward to the breaking of fast but they don’t really know how long they need to wait.

 

This activity is to help them learn to tell time using the analog as well as digital clocks.

 

The Ramadan Telling Time Puzzles pack contains simple two piece puzzles that help child practice telling time. They match the time on the lantern faced clock to the correct digital time.

How to make the Lantern Telling Time Puzzles

What you need:

  • Telling Time Printable 
  • Cardstock or paper
  • Laminator and laminating sheets( if you are using paper)
  • Ice cream sticks – 2
  • Scissors

How to prepare:

  1. Download the printable.
  2. Open the file with Acrobat reader.
  3. Print out the puzzle pages and the clock face page.
  4. We will use a red and blue colored ice cream stick to learn about the minute and hour hand. If you don’t have colored sticks, you can paint two sticks red and blue or use cardstock. (No need to cut them to size! Just two plain sticks will do.)
  5. If you are using paper, laminate the puzzle cards to prolong their life or you can use cardstock.
  6. Cut the puzzles to separate the pieces.

How to teach children to tell time:

  1. We will use the Clock Face page for reference. You can stick the paper up on a wall (preferably near a clock) so they can easily see the two clocks together and compare.
  2. Teach them about the minutes first. Tell them that there are 60 minutes in an hour.
  3. Skip count with them in 5s to show them the numbers.
  4. Next show them why you are skip counting. (You can count all the lines on the clock till you reach 60 for this).
  5. There are 12 hours on a clock but the clock goes around two times. (We will not tell them about the 24 hour clock yet since it will confuse them.)
  6. You can talk to them about day and night time. 7’oclock in the morning and 7’oclock in the evening. 12 o’clock is noon and midnight. Talk to them about bedtime and wake up time.
  7. If your child doesn’t know how to tell time and this is the first time they are learning, it is a good idea to keep practicing this with them using the Clock Face Page for reference. Whenever you tell time, take them to the clock and explain how it is. Ask them what time is it from time to time. This will help them practice.
  8. Use the puzzle to practice and remind how numbers and minutes are counted.
