  • The funny thing is, they do teach it in first grade but before the kids get a good handle on it, they move onto a new lesson. My oldest DD is 17 and can not tell time by a regular clock, she has to have a digital, and thats all the schools have, so I guess it is no longer important. They push so much on them so fast the kids never really learn anything but the basics. I guess that has something to do with our state being the bottom 48 in education. It really is sad.

  • My kids are 7 & 8 and have mastered telling time on both a digital and analog clock.

  • My oldest learned in first grade and they go over it every year (4th now). My son has been able to read a digital since he was 4, but learning this year at school (1st grade) for the regular clocks.
