Telling time – learning kids to tell time with the interactive Fun Clock By Mingoville Education App Review

My 5 year old is learning to tell time in kindergarten. I have noticed a couple of things now on this my 3rd child learning this lesson. First, she loses attention very quickly. Second, telling time from scratch can be hard to teach. My 3rd child gets the cool benefit of technology. It is easier and a lot more fun to learn to tell time with apps. Mingoville Education’s Telling Time app has an interactive and effective teaching experience for time telling youngsters. 

I loved the animation of the birds, the background voices and the iPhone interface to drag and drop the numbers and hour & minute hands on the clock. The exercises reinforce the learning and make telling time a fun and memorable lesson. 

Here are some screenshots from the app:

The following games are included:
✔ Learn to build your own clock 
✔ Talking clock 
✔ Learn to set the time Move the hands to tell time 
✔ Choose the right clock to make the bus depart 
✔ Tilt the ipad or iphone to move the numbers to the right position on the clock
