Kumon My Book of Easy Telling Time
Telling time is one of the skills that reinforce how useful it is to learn number skills. Familiarize your children with the concept of telling time by using My Book of Easy Telling Time. Kumon's slow, systematic approach helps children learn this difficult but vital skill with minimal distress.
Using Kumon's step-by-step approach, this workbook introduces children to the concept of telling time by concentrating on the hours first, then incrementally introducing children to half- and quarter-hours. Learning to tell time this way will also help children improve their general understanding of numbers.
Over 20 years ago, when our family began this delightful home school adventure, workbooks for toddlers and preschoolers were hard to find. But that was just as well because the ones that were available were inane, insipid, or intolerable. (Why would we choose to prohibit watching corrupting television, then turn around and use workbooks with those same characters depicted in them?)
Workbooks are not appropriate for all young children; many are simply not ready for the fine motor skills that are necessary. Let those children continue to learn at their God-ordained pace and in a way that encourages a love of learning. But when your children are ready to move to focused learning, reach for Kumon Workbooks. The captivating illustrations are child-friendly and the scope and sequence are just what educating parents have been looking for.
Kumon centers have been helping children master fundamental skills for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, they have excelled in their primary emphasis of math and reading instruction. With the exception of a page or two of nonsense, these are outstanding books, worthy of any child's time and effort. The skills taught are essential and appropriate, and their presentation can entice even the most hesitant learner. The assignments are short; each is slightly more challenging than the last so that your child progresses at a gradual, comfortable pace.

We used this as a supplement and it was great practice.
My three-and-a-half-year-old really enjoyed this book, though she did seem to know that this was more 'school' than the other Kumon books we purchased. She finished the book very quickly, even though I kept limiting her pages. The only drawback I've seen is that now, at five, she seems not to remember a lot of what she learned. I wish I would have kept the book so she could review or redo now that's she's older.
My special needs child picked this book out herself and is loving it. It's quick and easy at the beginning and progressively gets harder. She is finding more and more interest in knowing what time it is.
My 4 and 6 year old both really enjoy this workbook. It's been a really easy and child friendly way to learn time telling.
These Kumon books are great! My daughter has used this one to help her learn time. Great for k and 1st grade.
