Telling the time with EasyRead Time Teacher

Telling the time with EasyRead Time Teacher – review and giveaway

As you all know, my son turned nine at the beginning of the week and I’m keen for him to start wearing a watch regularly.  I wanted him to have a watch with a traditional style face, rather than a digital watch.  He’s been trying to get to grips with the 24 hour clock and I’ve discovered the perfect watch for him.  We’ll be telling the time with EasyRead Time Teacher, using their Red and Blue face 24 hour wrist watch.

EasyRead Time Teacher have a range of clocks and watches to help children learn to tell the time, they also have a great range of classroom resources for those of you working in an educational environment.  When I looked at the range of watches that they supply I knew the 24 hour option was just what we needed.  He’s cracked to and past the hour, but as soon as someone talks about 18:52pm he’s still a little lost.

My son loves everything red, he’d opted for the Red & Blue Face 24 hour wrist watch with comes with a navy strap as standard.  EasyRead Time Teacher have a range of different coloured straps you can order as well, so obviously we picked the red strap as an optional extra.  The nylon straps are really easy to change and he’s now got a spare, that also goes with the watch face, that he can wear if he so chooses. If you’ve got a muck magnet like my son, then it’s also worth knowing that as well as being breathable, these straps are washable. You might also want to know that the straps are 15 mm wide and 21.5 cm long.  They fit wrists from 12 cm – 18 cm circumference, so basically from a small child to a medium adult.  I can wear this watch as easily as my son.

The watch face is a genius idea in my opinion.  It makes it so clear for children to be able to understand the 24 hour clock.

My son has really progressed with telling the time with EasyRead Time Teacher since wearing this watch.  The watch face has made it so much easier for him to understand.  It’s a real step forward for him, he looks at wear the long hand is pointing and that’s him sorted.

The watches are aimed at children aged five to twelve years of age, and what I really love about this watch is that my son can read it just as well if he wants to use the 12 or 24 hour clock.  It’s really perfect for him.

  8. Wrist Watch – Red & Blue Face – Past & To – Grey Strap Because the face is clearer and easier to read plus the colour is unisex to pass on to siblings

  9. I would choose the red as it would be perfect for him, and red is his favourite colour. He is 6 and is desperate to tell the time, but only knows o’clock and half past at the moment

  10. I would choose the EasyRead Time Teacher Past & To Watch in Blue. It’s my niece’s favourite colour and she’s just at the right age for one of these.

  13. I think I’d choose the EasyRead Time Teacher watch for my son, but I’m agonising over which colour strap I’d choose! Probably have to follow your example and get a spare strap in a different colour 🙂 Love that these are so helpful for little ones mastering a ‘traditional’ clockface, but they aren’t garish digital ‘character’ style

  14. I would choose the red and blue face watch with the navy blue strap for my niece because I think it would be the most suitable to wear at school.

  15. the red one for my son this would also help him to learn how to pace himself in his daily activities while he is still young enough that its easy to learn. I have EDS and he inherited it and already struggles with the pain it causes so this would be perfect in that respect

  16. EasyRead Time Teacher 24 Hours Watch, Red. Knowing /Learning the 24 hours is important, we use timetables and interact globally.

  17. My daughter would love the EasyRead Time Teacher Rainbow Past & To Watch – Pink, its her favourite colour and i think she would understand the past and to watch better than a 24 hour one.

  18. I think I would choose the pink strap to start and once the lesson was learned I could buy another strap in a different colour and pass it on!

  22. for me would be EasyRead Time Teacher Rainbow 24 Hour Watch – Lime its a really lovely colour and my little ones favourite

  23. I like the grey watch, it’s very elegant and simple, perfect for any child! These watches are great, my niece is 6 and this watch would really help her. My youngest is 11 and uses a digital watch as he still takes a while reading analogue watches xx

  24. I really like the purple EasyRead Time Teacher ERW-COL-24 Rainbow Face 24 Hour Watch. This would be great for Daisy. She’s getting the hang of ‘to’ and ‘past’ but I agree that the 24 hour clock is difficult for them

  25. My daughter would love the EasyRead Time Teacher Rainbow 24 Hour Watch – Pink. I love how colourful and girly it is but then has the great 24hr clock face which is just amazing.

  26. I would choose the EasyRead Time Teacher 24 Hour Watch – Blue because my granddaughter loves blue and this is a 24-hour watch which would be very useful for her.

  27. I would choose the Rainbow Face watch with the purple strap for my friend’s daughter as she would love it as it is so colourful and bright.

  28. the rainbow one in pink – forgot to say why – harmony loves unicorns and rainbows and pink so it would be her fave out of all the chices

  34. the ‘Past and To watch’ one as the face looks really easy to read and the red and blue colours would help with timekeeping.

  35. I woulf choose the Red & Blue Face – 24 Hour – Grey Strap for my son because the numbers are clear and bold. It’s great to show the 24 hour clock so it helps children understand the link with digital clocks too.

  36. My daughter never gets an opportunity to practice on an analog clock / watch do this would be so helpful. I think the blue one is lovely.

  37. I’d choose the rainbow face with the purple strap. I love it and I know that my granddaughter would love it too

  39. The red & blue face with navy strap for my nephew – because it’s the same one my daughter used, so I know how good they are

  40. I would choose the watch with the navy blue strap for my son because I think he would prefer the colour. He is really struggling with learning to tell the time and is getting very frustrated, so this watch would be ideal.
