Timothy Time is more than just a lovable character – he knows how to clearly explain the concepts of telling time. Unfortunately many kids, even older ones, do not know how to tell time using an analog clock – one with hands. Telling Time DVD offers the perfect solution.
This video starts off easy and gives clear examples along with lots of humor and musical entertainment. Kids learn to tell time to the half hour, quarter hour, five minutes, and eventually to the minute. This video provides plenty of review and practice so that students build their skills every time it is used. As a bonus, this DVD includes days of the week, months of the year, and how calendars work.
"I watch along with my six-year-old daughter and pause the DVD during the test section, reminding of the necessary steps (if required) to decipher the time. She's making good progress, and with enough time she can consistently tell time in five-minute intervals after watching the disc occasionally over a three-week period. That might seem like awhile, but we've been very casual. She loves the Telling Time DVD so this learning process has been incredibly fun for her." - Jennifer, parent and author of Quiverfullfamily.com

In the ten years that I've been teaching, I have never seen a better educational video. It is so terrific; it held my interest the whole time! It is so beautifully done and is just great!
