Product Description:

This little (4" diameter) clock is geared like the larger Judy clocks. While smaller than our 5" clock, it's still large enough for close-up demonstration and student use AND so inexpensive, we don't know why you'd even consider a non-geared substitute.

Publisher Description:

Engage small groups or individual students in time-telling activities with this student clock with mechanisms. Color-coded hour and minute functions.

Category Description for RightStart Mathematics:

Based on research comparing the differences between Japanese first grades and first grade classrooms in the U.S., this curriculum incorporates certain aspects from Asian math programs such as non-counting strategies and, for us, an alternative number naming system. In this program, the student is taught to see quantities in groups of fives and tens. When asked to add 9 + 7, instead of counting 7 up from 9, you would take 1 from 7 to make 10 and 6. This program also uses a unique number naming system. Asian words for numbers greater than 10 implicitly give you a feel for the base ten system. Literally translated, eleven is "ten-one," twelve is "ten-two," and so on. RightStart students learn to count the "math-way" before they are taught the less intuitive words for 11 to 19.

I cant summarize this program better than the creator, so let me quote from the manual:

"There are eleven major characteristics.

1. Refer to quantities of up to 3 as a group; do not count individually.

2. Use fingers to show quantities up to 10; teach 6 to 10 as 5 plus a quantity.

3. Avoid counting procedures for finding sums and remainders.

4. Once quantities 1 to 10 are known, proceed to 10 as a unit. Use the "math way" of counting; say for example, 1-ten 1 for eleven, 1-ten 2 for twelve, 2-ten for twenty, and 2-ten 5 for twenty-five.

5. Use expanded notation (overlapping) place-value cards for recording 10s and 1s

6. Proceed rapidly to hundreds and thousands; use place-value cards. Provide opportunities for trading between ones and tens, tens and hundreds, and hundreds and thousands with manipulatives.

7. Only after the above work, give the traditional English names for quantities 20 to 99 and then 11 to 19.

8. Teach tens-based strategies for addition and subtraction facts that have a sum > 10. Teach informal solutions and mental computation before written algorithmic work.

10. Teach four-digit addition and subtraction on the abacus; let the children discover the paper and pencil algorithms.

11. Short division precedes long division, which is taught in fourth grade."

In Level G, students continue to practice arithmetic, fractions and decimals, while they begin to also explore triangles, area, volume, ratios, Pythagorean Theorem, tiling, and other new concepts.

All levels require a lesson manual and worksheets, which are included in the starter kits. (The worksheets are also available separately for multiple students.) Lesson manuals contain detailed lesson plans with helpful diagrams and teaching notes. Both lesson manuals and worksheets are spiral-bound. Add on kits allow you to move forward, buying only what you need in addition to what you already have for the next levels. Deluxe Starter kits (and deluxe add-on kits) are now available, which include everything in the original kits, plus additional recommended books and manipulatives. Please note that if you start with a deluxe kit, you will need a different upgrade kit to transition to the next level. See individual descriptions for more details on kit-specific contents.~ Anh

My kids are kinetic learners, so I found this curriculum to be very helpful. Now that I'm teaching a fifth grade class, I use Right Start's games and manipulative to help math make sense. Having something to touch and move helps kids understand what the paper assignment is talking about.

Right Start Math A. I wanted one with 24 hours on it, but I will just use a sharpie marker myself. Nice price. I hope it works out.

Is it a working clock?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, you turn the knob on the back to make the hands move. They move together like a real clock. But it does not keep time. Or turn on its own.

Teaching time is easier with this
I love this little clock for teaching my daughter time. The hour is moved by you and the minute hand automatically moves with it. Can also stand upright with the little clip behind it.

I recommend this clock manipulative.
This is a handy little clock for students learning to tell time. I appreciate how the hour hand moves with the minute hand to make it work more like a real clock. The hour and minute hand colors match the corresponding numbers to help remind the user which number is which. It even has a little prop on the back so it can stand on its own if you so desire. And, surprisingly, it has held up well to three young boys using it for school time (and some play time, too)!

Great Clock at a Great Price
This is a terrific little geared clock that really helps when you are trying to teach someone how to tell time. My nephew is fascinated by it! The fact that the hour hand moves when you move the minute hand really captures his attention. It is a very helpful item that improves lessons about telling time.
