Through many studies, it is said that anywhere between 75% of school aged children are unable to tell time on an analog clock. That may seem like a pretty big number but as a mama to school aged children I’d be inclined to believe it. My little ones used to have a BIG issue with reading clocks and back in my school years it was also hard on me too; being unable to tell time outside of digitally is a major issue for many children. Many people, adults included, simply look at their cellular or home computer devices to check time rather than look at an analog clock.
I can recall how frustrating it was for not only myself but many of my classmates to nail down the correct way to tell time, when I was in elementary school. It was a test of patience for our teacher but for us kids it was a true trial in itself. Personally, when it came to telling time, my biggest issue was all of the added markings of the analog clocks, with the hours/minutes hands added in. My brain has always had an issue with becoming overwhelmed when too many factors are introduced at once & the old style clocks were just that, overwhelming.
These days I still find myself carefully counting the little minute ticks on watches or office clocks but those times are far and few between. My kiddos on the other hand, they still get tripped up at this stage even though they learned clocks ages ago. The difficulty they, along with countless other children, face with time is the reason why I was so grateful to work with Tell Time Fun. The CEO of this time teacher watch company recently reached out to share with me their product that they hoped would be beneficial to my littles and the journey to becoming pros at telling time.
