Tell the time lotto
I find lotto a useful way to teach children skills and concepts, and so tend to use this quite frequently when doing work on time.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The game comes in quite a sturdy box which is brightly coloured and has lots of pictures of time based items on the front- namely several clocks. One thing I like about Orchard toys games is the fact that the instructions are written on the outside base of the bo so no chance of losing them.
Inside the box there are 4 lotto boards divided into six pictures with a time and a description of the picture eg picture of ice creams, analogue clock showing quarter to three and the description "have an ice cream". All of the pictures are nice and bright and each section divided by a thick yellow line so no chance of being unable to differentiate between pictures.
There are also 24 matching time cards which the children place on the lotto board when they win the card.
All of the cards including the lotto boards are sturdy and well made and covered in a water proof covering so no danger of being ruined if water is splashed on them
HOW TO PLAY...
It's a simple game of lotto whereby players chose a lotto board and then place the small cards in the middle of the table. One at a time players chose a card from the pile and if they have the corresponding card on their lotto board then they cover it.
The winner is the first player to cover all of their squares.
We play variations of this but also use small clock faces where I put a time on the clock face and children read the time and
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The game is available from www.orchardtoys.org.uk and is on sale at the moment and priced at £5.99, so quite a bargain for a game of this quality.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The game is recommended for children age 5-9 years, although it is useful for older children if they are still unsure of time telling.
This is a good quality game which can be adapted for the needs and ages of specific children.
The cards are bright colourful and sturdy and even the pointer on the clock face hasn't broken after many games.
I would recommend this for anyone wanting a fun way to teach children the time
Thanks for reading
