Interactive clock app teaches kids to tell time

My eldest has learned to read 4 o’clock for one reason: that’s what time he’s allowed to turn on the iPad. It might be time to introduce the other o’clocks to his repertoire, and the Interactive Time Clock app is a good place to start.

There are seven games to play, and nine clock faces to choose from, including a droll lion with a fluffy mane or a bug-eyed owl which is for more sophisticated players only using the times that are multiples of three.

Beginners start with the “Set the Time” game. Players are given a time, like 7 o’clock, and they twirl the minute hand around the clock face until they’ve set the clock correctly. Each correct answer earns them a gold star, until they get enough gold stars to trade them in for fish to collect in the app’s aquarium.

The “What Time is it?” level teaches kids to read the time and choose the correct hours and minutes. If that’s too complex, the explore section lets players adjust the clock and the app reads out the time.

The Interactive Time Clock app is engaging and colourful, and great for a range of ages and abilities.

You can get an iPhone or iPad version from the App Store or Android from Google Play.
