Tell Time is a great app for teaching kids ages 4 – 9 how to tell time. I was pretty impressed with what I saw in this app as while as my son using this app.
I really like how this breaks up telling time into 8 different engaging lessons. What really impressed me was that the lesson is set up to be read and has different detailed examples. If your child really listens to the listens which are direct at to the point they learn different ways of telling time. Using a regular clock with big hand and little hand, and an analog clock. I like how it showed the big hand and little hand. I like that they use words such as o’clock, half past the hour, if the big hand is on the 6 and little hand is on the 2 what time is it?.
I liked the way the tests were set up. The kids earn coins for right answers to play with their Chimp. I really like the variety of questions, pictures, and multiple choice. The test really reflects on reading the lesson and what they learned from the lesson.
Another thing that stands out is that you can track your child’s progress. You can look in the reports section to see how your child is doing as well as receive weekly mails.
In my opinion, as a home school mom, I think this makes a really great addition to our Math class. In addition to what I already use for math, I am now including Tell Time until my son can master telling time on a regular clock. I also think this would be great for teachers to have in a regular classroom as well.
I also want to share with you that Study Pad, INC also has an App Called Splash Math that goes by grade. I think it goes from Gr 1 – 5. For Example 1st Grade Math: Splash Math Worksheets Game for 13 Chapters. I am not really going to get into the app. One thing that really seems appealing to me is that this app is a while year worth of math curriculum. Which honestly I don’t think there is many apps out there like that. So it’s definitely something to look into if your a home schooler or a parent whose child needs extra help in math, or your a teacher adding it to your classroom.
You can purchase Tell Time in the app store for $1.99 and is compatible with ipad.
