Time Here, Time There, Time Everywhere: Teaching Young Children Time through Daily Routine

Childhood Education, v85 n3 p191 Spr 2009
According to Piaget, 5- or 6-year-old children gradually acquire the concept of time based on events (Piaget, 1969). In his experiment of investigating children's time concepts, Piaget found that children of these ages were able to place pictures based on sequential events with some errors; the younger children made more errors. The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC, 1997) indicates that while children from 6 to 8 years old have some understanding of time, they still do not fully grasp its relationship to length of time. This article offers ways of teaching young children time through daily routine.
