We’re using Math Mammoth Light Blue Series Grade 2 this year for math. Just as we were starting a chapter on telling time, a representative from StudyPad, Inc. contacted me to see if we’d like to review their new Tell Time app. Perfect timing! (Pun intended…)
What’s in Tell Time?
In this screen shot, you can see that Tell Time has multiple levels. Each level is broken down into a teaching lesson and a test. Taking the test earns coins. The levels include:
- The Clocks
- Time to the Hour
- Time to the Half Hour
- Time to the Quarter Hour
- Time to 5 Minutes
- Time to the Minute
- AM and PM
- Elapsed Time
Jonathan Puts Tell Time to the Test
Jonathan jumped right in. He’s gone all the way through to telling time to 5 minutes. He liked the lesson portion and would watch and play through it a few times before taking the test. He was quite excited to find that taking a test successfully earn him coins. Those coins allowed him to dress up the monkey who is the guide through the Tell Time App. To me it’s silly, but to him it’s all about the reward and he’s had lot of fun changing the accessories on that monkey.
