Magnetic Elasped Time Set Give-Away from @LearningHandsOn

14 Piece Magnetic Elapsed Time Set by Learning Resources

We study time a lot in second grade.  When Learning Resources asked me to select products to review and give-away, I knew I wanted to find a product that focused on telling time via an analogue clock.

The Magnetic Elapsed Time Set works to build a complete understanding of elapsed time.  The 14 piece set includes: 2 clock faces with removable guide numbers, 4 piece timeline with color-coded am and pm hours, 2 hour and 2 minute hands, start and end labels, and an activity guide.

Because children are not exposed to analogue time as much, having these vibrant displays really helps to understand how to read the clock and determine the passing of time.  I especially like having the colored timeline to use for calculating the elapsed time.  This feature is easily understood by my second graders because we practice a lot with number time lines and counting.  Therefore it is easy to transfer the concept to time.
