This product is the heart of the EasyRead Time Teaching System. It sits on the Classroom wall or at home all day every day. It displays the time in the most readable way, with the hands always telling the children which numbers they should read. Teach your students or children the 3 step system and they will all be able to tell the time on the EasyRead Classroom clock as soon as they can confidently recognise numbers. The ergonomically designed hanger makes it super simple to re-hang after you’ve used the clock for demonstration. Ages 5-12. English language. Clock size:  35cm diameter

1. Past and to:

The traditional English language method expresses time as 'minutes past' and 'minutes to' the hour. This
method is used in many countries alongside the 12 & 24 hour format for timetables

Teaching a child to tell the time in ‘minutes past and to the hour’
requires a 3-Step Time Teaching System:

Step 1:

Read the number at the end of the long hand



Step 2:

Say which side the long hand is pointing to:

'minutes to' pink side, 'minutes past' green side

'....minutes to'

Step 3:

Read the number at the end of the short hand


Put it all together:

Read the number at the end of the short hand
'...8 minutes to 2'

It really is that easy!

Now practise until the 3 steps become second nature.
