Clock Stamp

Don't forget, there are opportunities every day to enter the Montessori at Home eBook and Materials Bundle Giveaway!

The boys had a fantastic time learning to tell time back in September.  We didn't have to do any follow-up work with that.  The boys are very proud to be able to tell time and once they had the skills, they have picked up a lot of skills using our clocks daily.  Me Too's skills aren't as strong as Kal-El's, but he will get a nice review next year if he needs it.  Today Kal-El was looking for something interesting and new to do.  I have been getting some passage of time story problems ready for him.  I though some work learning to record the time using a clock stamp would be a fun first step.

Our clock stamp is from the local teacher-supply store.  Our jumbo stamp pads are from Discount School Supply.  I didn't ask him to record any particular times, I left it to him to think of his own work and was pleased with the variety he came up with.

Me Too thought this looked like great fun and soon got in on the action.  Having to draw the hands was a good review of where the short and long hands are truly pointing.  Afterward they kept the ink out and created a lot of art with our geometric stamps.


  1. Nice! I need to get these stamps, my daughter would love it!

  2. Wow! I'm always drooling at the homeschool stuff you have!!

  3. I love the clock stamp! I will have to look for one the next time I go to our teacher's supply store, too - for the ones coming up that don't know how to tell time, and for brushing up if it's needed (we happen to be guilty of having many digital clocks and not one analog *that works* in the house!)

  4. What a great idea! One thing I always enjoy when I read your blog is the twist you make on works. I have seen the stamps used to make booklets, which I did with a child before. But this looks exactly made for your boys and it looks fun! Love it!!

    Thank you for sharing.

  5. For those looking to place an order with Montessori Services, they have the stamp too ;)

    We love this stamp and use it SO much - work journal; learning to tell time; time math problems; etc. Very useful!
