mzl.xofgcscnTodo Telling Time by the well-known Locomotive Labs, is an engaging app1 with many activities to learn different aspects of telling time.  Calendar concepts, days of the weeks, time to the hour and minute as well as schedule components. Practice both analog and digital time.  There are six leveled games within the app.  This app does an outstanding job of breaking down individual skills that are necessary for telling time.

The home screen corresponds with the correct time of day (analog and digital) along with the date, which makes a nice application. You will notice that 10:00 pm has an evening sky with a moon and an earlier time of day (like shown below) with a daylight scene.

A nice leveled multiple-choice quiz activity allows for assessing some newly learned skills!   There is not a read aloud option for the quiz activity, so unless the child is an independent reader this will require adult support.  Adult support is a positive thing and allows for some interaction between the learner and teacher.

This is an excellent app, which is aligned with common core state standards for telling time. I highly recommend this one!
