What educators are saying

I remediated some of my 4th grader's misconceptions about time-telling with this resource, and taught my 4yo to tell time to the hour pretty much within 2 minutes.
Love this approach to teaching time (the rooms) ! My students grasped the concept quicker , I use this every year it’s great!

I find that many kids have the misconception that the hour is whatever the short hand is closest to. This works in the beginning when they're learning how to tell time to the nearest hour. As telling time increases in difficulty, they have to relearn how to find the hour.

This kit helps by showing kids visuals that the hour actually has its own "room." As long as the short hand is within that space, that's the hour.

This kit is also great for older kids who are still struggling with telling time. It helps remediate the incorrect ideas they have about the hour.
