Teacher Review

Jungle Time is a colorful app that presents a variety of ways for kids to learn to tell time.Teachers have quite a few settings to allow total customization. Levels go from 1-5- from 1 hour intervals to 1 minute intervals. Clock style can be the standard clock with hours only, a learning clock with hour and minute numbers with color coded hands or Roman numerals. Data is also tracked upon completion of a 10 question exercise.
 
Jungle sounds are in the background, if they are too distracting they can be turned off in the settings. Activities include telling time, setting time, time elapsed and set elapsed. Each question has audio for students who need to hear the directions. The clocks are analog clocks but the answers are digital helping students understand both types of clocks.
 
This app offers a tremendous amount of flexibility and growth for the student. Working with 12 Developmentally Disabled students we set the students up by level with no more than 3 in a group. Students were able to learn to take turns. Each day we worked individually with one student scoring their level and entering data for their IEP goals.
 
Kids can learn how to tell time from the hour to the minute. They'll also learn how to move the minute and hour hands to set the time. Kids who have mastered beginning concepts or who struggle with telling and setting elapsed time have the opportunity to learn how to master pragmatic language and how to differentiate between functional concepts such as behind and ahead. Custom settings help you tailor the app for your kid's skill level. Kids can use audio to hear directions and use the color-coded hands as they first learn to understand minutes.
