Learn to tell the time in “minutes past” and “minutes to” the hour in three easy steps with a real, good looking wall clock. The clock is completely silent – no ticking – so can be put anywhere without disturbing concentration.
Take a look at the photos to see how easy it is to learn the time with the EasyRead Time Teacher system. The two sides of the clock dial are colour coded – green on the right and red on the left. Tell your child that the green side of the clock is called “Minutes Past”; and the red side is called “Minutes To”.
The three simple steps for a child telling the time are:
Step 1: Read the number at the end of the long hand
Step 2: Say which side of the clock the long hand is pointing to (Minutes Past, or Minutes To)
Step 3: Read the number at the end of the short hand
Like this: 8…minutes to…2
It’s that simple!
EasyRead Time Teacher was started by Roger Shackleton, based in Sydney and a winner of the Australian Design Award. He designed the EasyRead Dial and the Three Step Teaching System after finding it extremely difficult to teach his own children to tell the time using regular analogue clocks. Roger’s designs have been so successful that the clocks are now available in Europe and North America.
