    Animated Clock for Windows by Flix Productions

    GRADE LEVEL:Elementary; Secular

    COMMENTS:This is a FAVORITE of mine! Download this shareware demo--click on the ICON next to ANIMATED CLOCK which is under the ANIMATED LEARNING CD--and give your child practice in reading analog and digital clocks. Your child must convert time from digital to analog or vice-a-versa. Or he must set the clock to show a specific time. When your child does so many problems, the clock becomes animated and does all kinds of cute things. You can also select difficulty levels in increments of hours, half-hours, 15-minutes, 5-minutes or 1-minute. Registration brings more animations.

    I even let my 6th grade daughter practice with this last year. In these days when kids usually see only digital clocks, it is very important that we are sure they can read time in either mode! Continual review never hurts ANY child in ANY grade!
