Giveaway: Educational Insights Watch-It Elapsed Time Clock Review

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 mom is a teacher and she is constantly reminding me that kids learn better if they are actually having FUN and enjoying what they are doing.

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 ;)

    Educational toys are important because kids use them since they are “toys” but they are also learning at the same time (a win-win situation!)

    Educational toys are important for learning because it gives children hands-on real world learning that will stay with them for life.

    My 4-year-old son has Autism and I have seen first hand how various toys can help break through learning barriers that other educational tools cannot.   They teach in a fun and unintimidating way and most of the time the kids just think they are playing for the fun of it.  Sort of like sneaking veggies in the pizza sauce!  :)

    I think educational toys are important because they teach things to children in ways they can understand, through toys.  Thanks for the giveaway!

    I think educational games are good for kids because they continue to learn at home as well as school. It’s a good idea because their brains are like sponges and it’s fun to learn. Thanks for the cool giveaway!  :)

    Children can have just as much fun using educational toys. I think it’s important to let them know learning can be fun.

    I think educational toys are important because they help make learning fun.  Kids can play without even realizing that they are learning, too. Thanks for the giveaway.

    They are important because kids don’t even realize they are learning because they are PLAYING! :)

    I think educational toys are important because some of the most important ‘learning’ takes place outside of the classroom!
