Mark My Time
Do you have a child in school? Homeschool? Well, my daughter is supposed to read 20 minutes every night. She is the youngest of 5 children who have gone through this type of homework regimen and she is the only one who is extremely concrete in her thinking. If it has to be 20 minutes it will be that to the second.
So when the opportunity to review the Mark My Time Digital Bookmarks came up I was thrilled to be accepted. My daughter loves reading – she reads all the time. But there is a difference between spending hours reading what she wants to read versus spending 20 minutes reading for homework.
Made of durable polyethylene plastic it’s available in six hot colors – Neon Blue, Neon Purple, Neon Green, Bright Pink, Bright Yellow and Bright Red. With its slim form, it fits neatly between the pages of any book. The construction of this bookmark is perfect. It doesn’t cause book bulge at all. And the colors are so bright that any child would love them. All I have to do is touch a button to set the timer and she is all set.
So far we have only used the countdown timer but it has several features: At the top is a digital clock that’s powered by a replaceable watch battery. Choose to set a countdown timer with alarm that alerts readers when they have completed their required reading time or use the cumulative timer, which stores up to 100 hours of reading time over multiple sessions until the reader chooses to delete it. A 60-second countdown/count up feature displays seconds at the one-minute mark to aid in fluency checks.
In October my kids are starting guitar lessons so I can’t wait to also use this timer to time their practice sessions. You can find them at online retailers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble as well as Mark My Time’s online store HERE.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
