I’d like to share another great app with you today from Apparoo. This one is all about telling time. Growing up I learned to tell time on a traditional clock. But with digital clocks everywhere telling time for you, how is a kid supposed to learn?
This weeks Apparoo™ App of the Week is called Tic Toc Time.
Description: From a kid’s perspective, time is a bizarre concept: there are 60 seconds and 60 minutes, but 12 hours… unless there are 24! And phrases like ‘a quarter til’ and ‘half past’ that we take for granted just seem to make their brains melt. Tic Toc Time takes a holistic approach to teaching time; a family of beavers leads a progression of fun games that first explain using a compass and the movement of the sun and shadows before logically arriving at both digital and analog time-telling. A good time is guaranteed for all!
Mom Review: My boys ages 6 & & really enjoyed this app. They’ve kind of gotten stuck on the “how to use a compass” games and haven’t even gotten to the time, yet, but I suspect that will come soon enough. I can always tell if we’re onto something when they keep asking to play it.
For this weekend, they are offering the app for 99c. (retail price $3.99)
You can purchase the app on iTunes here.
