I just love being able to work with Educational Insights! Educational Insights is a wonderful place for parents and teachers to find toys that engage children’s minds while still having FUN.

My new favorite product is the Watch it! Elapsed Time Clock. I like it for several reasons… Steven is in 2nd grade and he is consistently working on math so this clock actually gives him opportunities to work on subtraction and addition. AND, he is great with telling time on a digital clock, but I really like that he is working on a clock with “hands.” It is the simplest, clearest way to teach elapsed time, this geared non-electronic set features two analog wristwatches with correlating digital clocks underneath. Just move the minute hand on the first watch to the desired start time and the minute hand on the second watch to your finish time — the digital clocks underneath will automatically adjust! How FUN is that?! You can slide open the cover on the answer window to see the elapsed time or keep it closed to give quizzes. This is a FUN idea for teachers AND parents…
On another note – Sadie is in Kindergarten, so you can imagine this is a great tool for her as well for all the obvious reasons. BUT, I have also started using it for SHOWING her the concept of time. For example, if I want her to clean her room for 15 minutes – I can SHOW her what 15 minutes looks like on a clock. She also has a hard time staying in her bed all night, so I use the clock to show her what time she goes to bed and what time she usually wakes up and she is see the elapsed time that she SHOULD be in her bed 😉
