Toys to Help Teach Time

Product Review Sunday for Nannies and Au Pairs

Last week we discussed how to teach kids to tell time. It's not an easy concept to teach and requires much patience. Yesterday we reviewed books to use with kids when teaching time. Below are some products to use to help teach kids to tell time too.

Farmyard Tales Telling the Time Flashcards by Steven Cartwright

These flashcards are a great way to help children learn how to tell the time. Look at the clock hands and read out the time in words and numbers on one side of the card. Turn the card over and read about what's happening at the farm. Fill in the answers on 15 wipe-clean cards, using the pen included in the box.

These telling time flashcards are recommended for children ages 3 and up. The Flashcards box measures 4 1/2 x 6 1/8. It includes 50 flash cards.

This hands-on learning activity emphasizes listening comprehension and math skills, as well as edge-of-your-seat anticipation. All time bingo games are fun, but they aren't all alike. This is perfect to help kids learn to tell time.
