Learn to tell the time in “minutes past” and “minutes to” the hour in three easy steps with a real, good looking watch. The band is adjustable and designed to suit very small wrists. The closest hole on the band results in a circumference of 12cm around the wrist, while the furthest along results in a 19cm circumference. The face of the watch has a diameter of approximately 3.3cm.
The band also goes right through behind the watch face, which avoids the “sweat slip/stick” hat comes with some watches.
Take a look at the photos to see how easy it is to learn the time with the EasyRead Time Teacher system. The two sides of the watch dial are colour coded – blue on the right and red on the left. Tell your child that the green side of the watch is called “Minutes Past”; and the red side is called “Minutes To”.
The three simple steps for a child telling the time are:
Step 1: Read the number at the end of the long hand
Step 2: Say which side of the watch the long hand is pointing to (Minutes Past, or Minutes To)
Step 3: Read the number at the end of the short hand
Like this: 8…minutes to…2
It’s that simple!
EasyRead Time Teacher was started by Roger Shackleton, based in Sydney and a winner of the Australian Design Award. He designed the EasyRead Dial and the Three Step Teaching System after finding it extremely difficult to teach his own children to tell the time using regular analogue clocks and watches. Roger’s designs have been so successful that the clocks are now available in Europe and North America.
