NO JOKE! – 4-in-5 Oklahoma City students can’t read clocks:
They may miss that hour of sleep, but as we turn our clocks ahead, chances are kids won’t be changing their watches.
That’s because the vast majority don’t have a watch.
A new study shows that only 1-in-10 Oklahoma City kids ages 6-12 own a watch. And only 1-in-5 know how to read it.
“Yeah, I was super surprised,” said Caitlin Carnes, who works for the Boys & Girls Club at Santa Fe South Elementary. “When I was growing up that was something that we learned. I don’t know if that makes me old or not.”
Instead Friday, Carnes worked to teach kids in the after-school program how to read analog clocks, something even the kids will admit they struggle with.
