Kids Time Fun - NB27 Suggested Grade Level: K-2


There are six early learning activities: Tell Time, Elapsed Time, Time After, and Time Before, Set Time, and Mixed Mode. Tell Time shows a clock and asks the child what time is it? Elapsed Time shows two clocks and ask the child to figure out how much time has passed between the first clock and second clock. Time After shows a clock and then asks the child to figure out what the new time will be after a specific number of hours and minutes have passed. Time Before shows a clock and then asks the child to figure out what the new time will be before a specific number of hours and minutes. Set Time shows a "digital" or "numeric" time and asks the child to touch and move the hands on the clock to match the "numeric" time. Finally, in Mixed Mode the person is presented with a random activity and is challenged to really master all aspects of Learning to Tell Time.


Tell Time Little Matchups Game - NB27 Suggested Grade Level: K, 1


★★★★★ A fun matching game to tell time - fully customizable too. :-)

Little Matchups is an exciting interactive matching game that helps your child rapidly learn how to tell time by matching analog and digital clocks.

While "telling time" is usually not covered until grade 2nd, I think this game is appropriate for any child that shows interest starting as early as 3 or 4. Why? I have seen 3 and 4 year olds read and if they can read simple books, they are sure old enough to read how to tell time. The important thing to remember is to have fun so if they are enjoying it go for it. If not, perhaps come back when they are ready.
