Have you heard of Zingo! Time-telling by ThinkFun? It is a fun way to learn how to read a clock. It is geared for ages 5 and up and specifically targeted for grades K-3rd. Since D is in K, C is in 2nd and B is in 3rd this has been a great addition to our game closet (and homeschool material as well).
This game includes two-sided cards (the green side is for younger players and the red side is for more advanced play), a Zinger and hour and minute tiles.
In this photo you can see the red Zinger and part of a playing card.
If you notice the green cards have the hours and minutes numbers provided for you below the clock faces. The red cards do not have these numbers provided for you making it a more challenging game. Thus there are two levels of play. The beginner level helps younger players get familiar with the concept of time and an Advanced level helps older players have more complex challenges.
I was surprised to see my kids so competitive in this game! It was really fun to watch them try and be the first to win. However, there was also a nice balance of the older kids helping the younger ones when they weren't sure what to do.
If no one needs the hour or minute tile in play in goes back into the Zinger via a slot on the top.
A completed card - winner!
B won this round.
I think this is a really fun way to help teach children time and improve their time telling skills. My kids really enjoyed it and we will definitely continue to use this game in the future.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
