Here at EasyRead Time Teacher, we love to hear your feedback on our products. We especially like it when you tell us how our teaching systems have helped that important child in your life learn how to tell the time. Take a look at what is being said about EasyRead:

“We love this clock! Our 3 year-old is so excited to have this clock in his room because he can read it so easily. He could already read times on the hour and half-hour before, but within a day or two of receiving this clock, he was accurately reading all times. Also, it is completely silent, with no ticking whatsoever.” Sonja L, October 2015.

“I really like this clock. My daughter learned to tell time on it in just a few days. It is pretty enough to hang in our dining room. I actually ended up buying a second one to use in my office because the second hand is silent.” Dem & Scott Schnathorst, February 2016.

“Great clock! My pre-schooler and I love learning numbers and time with this clock.” Michael Browers, January 2016.

“Great investment for your kids. My daughter loves it and she did learn to tell analogue time.” Jc Ov, May 2016.

“This clock has really helped both my granddaughters to tell time. Just wish I had it with my own daughter! They should have these in every school.” Janie Clements, October 2016.

Help your child learn how to tell the time with our clocks

Posted on July 29, 2016 by Sue Shackleton | 0 comments

Here at EasyRead Time Teacher, we believe that our wall clocks are perfect for helping the important child in your life learn how to tell the time. The clocks fit in effortlessly into your home, put one in the kitchen and get the whole family involved in helping them learn to tell the time. Or put one in their bedroom, and give them ownership over their own learning. They are also silent running so they won’t disturb their sleep.

The clear and colourful faces are easy to read, and are supported by our highly effective easy to understand three-step teaching system.

First, read the number at the end of the long hand. For example in the picture, the hand is pointing at the ‘3’. Then say which side it’s pointing to: either ‘minutes to’ or ‘minutes past’. In this case it’s pointing at ‘minutes to’. Finally, read the number at the end of the short hand; in the picture it’s ‘4’. Put it all together and you get ‘3 minutes to 4’.

The three-step teaching system and our clocks will give your child ownership of their own learning, and the confidence to practise telling the time while. Parents have been eager to tell us how the clocks have helped their child learn to tell the time.

Helping your child with additional needs

Posted on July 22, 2016 by Sue Shackleton | 0 comments

Children within the autistic spectrum or who have other Special Educational Needs such as dyslexia, or even children with Down’s Syndrome can really struggle with learning how to tell the time. They may have particular trouble with telling the time on an analogue clock face with hands. Children with additional needs may find it difficult to distinguish between the hour and minute hands; or may find the concepts of ‘past’ and ‘to’ difficult to grasp.

Our EasyRead wall clocks are clear and colourful with a large dial showing every detail your child needs. Our simple yet effective three step teaching system makes it much easier for children with learning difficulties to learn to read the time in terms of ‘minutes past’ and ‘minutes to’ the hour. We also have watches which use the same teaching system as the clocks, so that your child can continue practising while they’re out and about.

We believe that the wall clocks are a fantastic way of getting everyone in the family involved in helping teach children how to tell the time. When your child asks what time it is, you can use this as an opportunity to help your child with their learning by pointing to the hands and encouraging them to say aloud what the hands are pointing to.  You could even make your child the ‘official time keeper’ and ask them what the time is at frequent intervals. This would give your child the reassurance and confidence they need to keep practising.

Feedback from our customers, including parents with children who have Down’s syndrome or other special needs, indicates that our EasyRead clocks and watches have really helped their children learn to tell the time.

Help your child to learn to tell the time with one of our wall clocks.

Posted on July 15, 2016 by Sue Shackleton | 0 comments

We believe that our colourful wall clocks are a fantastic way of getting everyone in the family involved in helping teach children how to tell the time. Partnered with our effective teaching systems, and the large, easy-to-read faces, the clocks give your child ownership over their own learning.

The kindergarten maths curriculum requires children to be able to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour. Why not give your child a helping hand with this difficult task, and use one of our clocks to support their learning?

Our 3-step system makes learning to tell the time simple and easy to master.

First, read the number at the end of the long hand. For example in the above picture, the hand is pointing at the ‘8’. Then say which side it’s pointing to: either ‘minutes to’ or ‘minutes past’. In this case it’s pointing at ‘minutes to’. Finally, read the number at the end of the short hand; in the picture it’s ‘2’. Put it all together and you get ‘8 minutes to 2’.

The clocks go effortlessly into any room at home. Put it in the kitchen, where the whole family can get involved with learning to tell the time. When your child asks what time it is, you can use this as an opportunity to apply what they have been learning by pointing to the hands and encouraging them to say aloud what the hands are pointing to.

Or put it in your child’s bedroom, where your child can carry out what they’ve learned in their own time, giving them confidence to practise on their own. The silent running of the clock ensures that they will not be disturbed in the night by any constant ticking.
