EasyRead Time Teacher Playground Clock
Whole of school integration is the key to effortless reinforcement of classroom learning; ideally the clocks will be visible everywhere including the playground.
This durable weatherproof clock has a toughened glass lens and powder-coated steel frame so it can be placed anywhere the students congregate outdoors: near the canteen, at the school entrance, or in the playground.
Clock size: 36cm diameter.
How to use the EasyRead Time Teacher Clock
Insert a brand new high quality alkaline AA battery to ensure that the clock keeps a proper time.
First explain that the blue 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" blue side,
"minutes to" red side
(point to the side of the clock and the words)
3. Red 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.
