Apparoo App of the Week: Tic Toc Time

After two weeks of great app introductions, it's time to see what Apparoo, the app discovery service for busy moms, has found for this week!

This week Apparoo has found a great deal on an award-winning app that teaches kids to tell time!

App: Tic Toc Time

Tic Toc Time app

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!

This post is part of a sponsored weekly partnership with Apparoo, but all thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.

I will have to tell my cousin about this for my little nephews. This is great. It is confusing and I remember trying to teach this when I was in college to a little girl. She was confused and it wasn't easy to teach either for some reason. Rita Spratlen rj7777

If you think about it, the concept of time is very confusing. Looks like a fun way to get this across to kids.
