I Need A Watch

Lincoln: Hey, dad, I need a watch.

Me: What would you do with a watch?

Lincoln: I’d tell time.

Me: Oh…you know how to tell time?

Lincoln: *scowls*

Me: I’ll show you how. 

Lincoln: All I know is that if the little hand’s like on the 6 it’s o’thirty, but if the big hand’s on top it’s o’clock.

Me: (pointing to clock on the wall showing 6:45 pm) What time is it now?

Lincoln: I don’t know. I’ll have to wait till it’s 7:30.

  1. Is reading analog clocks still a subject in elementary school at any point? It seems like most kids would be exposed primarily to digital clocks/watches now.
