Who would love this: Perfect for parents and teachers, and kids who love to learn
I grew up in a culture where we read time a little differently. Even after years of residing in Melbourne, I still struggle whenever I hear the expression of “minutes past” or “minutes to” - my brain freezes whilst it frantically trying to convert the information into my preferred “time format”. So when I see this EasyRead Time Teacher , my heart skips excitedly. I knew instantly this is something I must share! Thank you EasyRead Time Teacher for sending this EasyRead 29cm Wall Clock to me for a review and write-up.
Why I love ❤️ this clock:
(1) Clever Design: I love the cleverly revamped clock surface that helps us identify time in nearest minutes but in a straightforward and “obvious way”. The circular clock is divided into two major colour zones - the “green zone” on the right points us to the “minutes past”, and the left “red zone” tells us the “minutes to” time. I have never seen any clock that focuses on telling time in such a conversational and traditional English style before. First, read the number at the end of the long hand, and observe if it is pointing towards the green or red zone. Then read the number at the end of the short hand. For example, the first picture above shows a time of “14 minutes to 5” (long hand pointing to 14 at the outer ring of red zone, and short hand pointing towards the big “5” area). My 5 year-old is not quite yet familiar with numbers beyond 20, but he can sort of grasp the idea of how this works. I think this is an amazing educational resources that we will be using for the next good many years! The fact that it is an actual workable clock means we can use and immerse time-learning in our daily routine.
(2) Silent Clock: I love how silent this clock is, without any distracting ticking sound.
(3) Lovely Colours: I love the 12 major numbers are in exciting rainbow colours against a white background. (The clock is also available in a plainer version of red, blue, white and grey colours scheme).
(4) Versatile: The clock can be mounted on wall as a regular clock, but it’s also light enough to be held in hands as a learning tool.
The EasyRead range also includes an alarm clock (which I will write about soon) and watches.
