I will try some starfall activities. That's basically how he taught himself to read when he was 4. LOL

I know he'll get it if I can find the right way to show him. It's just a matter of finding the right way.
For a problem like this, I have my kids use a clock and physically move the minute hand back 30 minutes. After awhile they can do it without having to move the hands.

Honestly, practicing with real clocks and change is how they learn.
