Turn around the clock
Time to use your feet to tell time to the o’clock by quickly turning and twisting your body. It is also a fun way to teach telling time.
Where to play
Open area inside the house or outside in the backyard/driveway/sidewalk
Try and make sure your space is clear of other objects
- Sidewalk chalk or paint (if outdoors)
- Marker and paper (if indoors)
Draw or mark on a piece of paper, the hours of a clock in a clockwise position on the ground.
Begin standing with your feet together in the centre of the clock facing the number 12.
At the leader’s command, each child will turn a foot towards the hour.
While in motion, swing the other foot, hip, upper body and head around until feet are parallel.
Challenge yourself! On command, turn your feet to the hour as quickly as you can.
