Easy Read Time Teacher Because Kids Should be Able to Tell Time! Giveaway!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Every so often I come across something that was a given for me as a child to learn, but kids do not necessarily know how to do today, nor do they want or even think they need to have that skill. Cursive handwriting is one. Telling time the traditional way is the other. Call me old-fashioned (or just practical) but I think everyone should know how to tell time, and by telling time, I don't mean looking at a digital number on your phone. EasyRead Time Teacher has come up with some great ways to help teach your child how to tell time.



EasyRead Time Teacher has developed some products that can help you with teaching time to your children or students. 



Though I like all of the products they have to offer, I think it is this wall clock that is my favorite. This clock has each minute and hour number listed, as well as the military hour, so no matter how you prefer to teach (half past the hour, oh-eight-hundred, or twelve-fifty-two) it can be done with this product. The colors are eye-catching and this is surely an activity that will hold your child's interest. Once they start getting into it, it's fun to learn how to tell time.


To reiterate what they are learning, you can take this portable card clock on the go. It's made of heavy-duty cardboard with a plastic dial. When I see it, car drives instantly come to mind. This would be great for a car ride where the child is in a seat belt or car seat right next to you (you not being the driver, of course). It would be a fun way to pass time that also helped to reinforce how to tell time, or even to teach it if you are on a long plane, train or car ride (which could be the case, since it is summer and so many of us are traveling right now). It's small enough to tuck into a bag or your purse. I suggest keeping the disposable plastic packaging sleeve it comes in, to keep it clean if you are taking it on the go. Of course, you could keep it at home too. This would be a great item to use just before or after story time, when kids are winding down at night too. However you choose to use it would be up to you, and truthfully there are infinite ways to do so.


They also have watches you can wear, with faces that look like the wall clock. This is a great way for children to practice all throughout the day, as well as be able to 'tell people what time it is' without looking at their phone.



Help children up the ante on their skills, and teach them how to tell time with any of these fun and very useful products. Learn more by visiting the EasyRead Time Teacher website.

For children, summer vacations are often full of fun, laughter and ice cream. But when September comes, many will find it tricky to get back into the swing of things at school. One of the most beneficial things we can do to help our children during the summer break is to help them learn how to tell time or to sharpen existing skills. We all understand how difficult it is to learn and adapt to something that we find boring and unengaging and, and this is no different for children. A standard clock face can appear uninteresting yet teaching from an app isn’t really “hands on.”

One company, EasyRead Time Teacher, offers children, teens and even adults a fun simple way for parents, teachers and children to master the art of learning to tell the time quickly and easily – all in just three unique simple steps.   

There is a Giveaway!

One lucky winner gets their choice of either the wall clock, or the wrist watch and clock card. US entrants only.

  3. I like that they are teaching analog time. I am afraid lots of kids are not learning that skill in the digital age.

  4. It's so true that it isn't taught as much now. My oldest is going into first grade and they barely touched on it in kindergarten. He's started asking about which is the minute vs hour hand and trying, but something like this would help him learn.

  6. I agree! Kids should be able to tell the time. Sometimes they don't know how to which is sad. It's a super useful product!

  7. How cute that their watch matches their clock products, to help reinforce it for kids! Getting their own watch for a birthday present definitely helped solidify analog time-telling as a skill for my girls!

  9. I wish there was more "old fashion" clocks out there. Everything is so digital and makes it harder for kids to learn.

  20. I learned that the clocks and watches are aimed primarily at children between 5-12 years old but are suitable for anyone who has difficulty learning or telling the time.

  21. I learned that "Some people express the time as minutes-past or minutes-to the hour. If that's the way you talk, use our 'Past & To' products and teach that method first."
