Do you have a little one that is learning to tell the time? Then, it’s time for Monster Time! Monster Time is a new app that is designed specifically to help children learn how to tell time. Your little one will have the help of five adorable little monsters while learning to tell time on both digital and analog clocks.
As your child completes levels with each monster character, they will be rewarded by unlocking up to 15 photos of their favorite monsters (there are 3 levels of difficulty per monster). Varying levels of difficulty help children learn as beginners and then move into more technical time-telling skills. I like that the levels of difficulty vary – from easy objectives like “set the clock to 7” to more difficult tasks like “set the clock to twenty minutes until 8” and so on. The really neat feature is that you are able to print out color-in sheets of the unlocked monster photos. The artwork is ghoulish, but at the same time is still cute enough that children will fall in love with the little creatures.
Learning how to tell time is tricky business. I think that Monster Time is a great app that has invented a fun way to help children learn this hard skill, while keeping it exciting. I will definitely be using this app with my son when the “time” comes!
