Time is a universal language. In fact it’s the only universal language in the world. We all take telling time for granted but there was a time, way back when, when we didn’t know how to tell time. We learned how to tell time in elementary school, and then never looked back.
If you can remember back to the days of when you learned to tell time, or you’re a teacher that’s teaching kids to tell time, it’s a little tricky. Until you’re taught how to tell time, it’s a pretty abstract concept. There are several different methods to teaching time to elementary students, but none are easier than the Easy Read Time Teacher method.
Easy Read Time Teacher is the simplest and most effective time teaching system for children. It’s working in UK classrooms, US classrooms, Australian classrooms and across the globe.
The Easy Read Time Teacher method goes beyond where the big hand is and where the little hand is. Their method also teaches kids valuable time telling skills like how many minutes past or how many minutes until the next hour. They do this using the Easy Read Time Teacher clock. Their clocks feature the hours 1-12, minutes and five minute intervals making it easy for students to logically understand and learn how to tell time.
Easy Read Time Teacher offers their clocks to classrooms along with other classroom resources. On their website teachers and parents will find a wide variety of tools to help children learn and keep time including:
- Past & To Products
- 12 & 24 Hour Products
- Wall Clocks
- Alarm Clocks
- Watch Straps
- Classroom Resources
Sure most students are exposed to some kind of digital clock via smartphone, tablet or other device but there are still plenty of places where traditional clocks and time telling methods are employed and students need to learn those skills at an early age so it sticks with them. Using the Easy Ride Time Teacher system, teachers are finding it takes far less time for students to grasp time based concepts.
