History and Time Intervals
Do You Have the Time? Three Ways to Help Your Child Understand Different Time Concepts
Time can still be a pretty abstract idea to a preschooler, but your 4-5 year old is starting to understand some of the broader concepts. He understands "before" and "after" and uses them to describe when things have happened or will happen. While he can't yet make sense of a clock or calendar, he knows that they are used to help measure the passage of time. In addition, he may know that bedtime is at seven o'clock, or that lunch is at noon, even though he can't tell how to read the clock. He'll also have a grasp of special days, such as birthdays or different holidays, and the traditions that surround them.
