EasyRead Time Teacher - Alarm Clock - Rainbow
This EasyRead Alarm clock is perfect for every child’s bedside table. With its red boots and coloured hat it will become your child’s bedroom friend, and help them learn to tell the time too.
The unique EasyRead time teaching system reduces instruction to just 3 steps; simple to learn and easy to remember.
The clock has a nightlight feature that automatically turns itself on as darkness descends and turns off again at dawn. Throughout the night the face emits a reassuring glow that helps kids who are scared of the dark and makes it easy to tell the time without turning a light on.
For a brighter light simply press the snooze button.
The clock has a crescendo alarm which starts gently and gets louder and louder until it’s impossible to ignore.
It has the standard snooze feature that gives an extra 5 minutes lie-in and repeats each time you press the snooze button until you turn the alarm off.
Makes no TICKING sound :-D
The clock takes 3 AA batteries which will last approximately 1 year (not included, only install brand new high quality alkaline batteries) and is guaranteed for 12 months from date of purchase.
Dimensions: 12.5cm diameter x 14cm tall x 7cm deep.
Learn to tell the time in 3 easy steps.
First explain that the green side of the clock is called 'minutes past' and the red side is called 'minutes to'.
Teaching your child in 3 steps:
1. Read the number at the end of the long hand (point to the number).
2. Say which side it's pointing to:
"minute past" green side,
"minutes to" red side
(point to the side of the clock and the words)
3. Then read the number the end of the short hand (point to the number)
Like this: "8 minutes to 2"
(point to each item as you say it)
Repeat until your child can tell the time without you pointing.
