    Default How old was your child when..

    They learned to tell the time?

    Not just recognise the hour but quarter past, 20 past etc

    ??? Also, any good books/ apps that can help with this???

    They were grade 2 and grade 3 as it is part of the curriculum at that age. So they learnt at school.

    Almost 11 and almost 9 year old struggle.
    I was about 7, maybe 8.
    But my mum took the time to do it, I am taking this school hols as an opportunity to do it with them.

    Kiddo has learnt over the last year and a bit. He was 7 when he got a proper watch.

    My eldest struggled and really only got it this year at 9 when I was teaching her younger siblings with their homework. Somewhere along the way DD1 had never been taught it with school and I didn't think to teach her. DD2&3 were 7&6 when they learnt.

    I have students that really really struggle with it. The website The Coffee Apple has a great teaching watch and clock too.

    My DD is 8 and can tell the time as 10 past, 25 past, 45 past the hour etc, but she doesn't quite get telling 20 to the hour etc.

    We have an app Interactive Telling Time which from memory had some good games (it's been a while since I've looked closely at it).

    I just had another look at the app. I think it's probably aimed at about 6 y/o. My 8 y/o would find it a bit boring now.

    Our two 9 year olds can't, and we didn't realise until last year. I just assumed it was taught at school...turns out it's not always taught.

    I asked my DD's teacher at her prep orientation a few weeks ago (different school to DS) and she said that although it's part of the curriculum, sometimes there simply isn't enough time in the school year to get through all of it, so they prioritise things and telling the time can often be the thing that gets dropped off the list

    So, in 2017 when DD starts school I'm going to teach her and will include DS and DSS so that they can all learn.

    Thankfully though, after raising it with DD's teacher she said she'll be incorporating it in on a daily basis.

    I was really surprised to learn that the boys hadn't learned.
