I know that telling time can be difficult for students, especially in my age range. So, I like how the Telling Time DVD has broken up the programs into the easier sections that get harder and harder. They go from hour to half hour to quarter hour and so on. There is even a section where they practice skip counting by fives. Plus, this matches up pretty nicely to how time is taught in Saxon Math.
Like in the previous review, Telling Time has small manageable bites. The programs on the disc are only a few minutes long. So, they make for a great for quick reviews and reinforcements of lessons already taught.
The characters in this DVD are fun and colorful. The music is lively and easy for the students to sing along with. The students find it fun and entertaining while still being educated.
Overall, I like the Rock ‘N Learn Telling Time. It fits well into my already established math program. I would recommend using this the classroom and even for home for children needing a little extra help.
