Options to purchase and download, too. We bought their Year 1-5 CD and it's good. Good customer support, too. They're located in Yorkshire in the UK but they mail to other countries.


    Downloads   Tellin' Time Free download, game for Windows only. From the author: "I put this together for my kids to practice reading the time off of an analog clock. It's based on a flashcard type game where an analog (12 hour) clock face displays a random time. The child is then expected to enter the "digital equivalent". A four minute timer runs in the background, and a count of correct/incorrect answers is displayed. This program is freeware. Enjoy."
