Both my girls love books! They love to take a pile of books to bed every night and they will spend a good hour or two reading (or looking at the pictures in the case of my 4 year old). Usually I have to go upstairs and tell them that it’s time to put the books away and actually SLEEP. Now that we have the Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark & Booklight, I don’t have to worry so much. I give them a set time, and the Bookmarks let them know when reading time is over.
“There’s no other product quite like it! Now you can accurately track children’s required reading times to help take the work out of daily reading homework. Named “Best New Product of 2004” by BookExpo America.
Its fun colors and electronic functions encourage kids to make reading a daily habit. For parents, it’s just a touch of a button, and the electronic timer is set to monitor how long a child reads.”
Now that Q is in first grade, we have started getting more serious about reading. She isn’t required to read for homework, but I want to make sure she is being challenged so I encourage her to read on her own. I am so glad we have these Bookmarks to help out! I set it for 10-15 minutes and it makes it a little more fun for her to read because she has the Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark keeping track of her time (instead of mom). It’s so helpful! It’s also ideal for timing music practice sessions, timed math fact activities, meetings, homework study sessions, cooking and interval training when exercising. I think it would be great for chores too. My girls usually take their time doing ANYTHING so if I give them a set time to get things done, maybe it would help them a little!
If you have kids in school then you know that they generally have an assigned amount of reading time they need to complete each week. Unless you have lucked out then you probably also know that it can sometimes be hard to get them to do it 🙂 I was thrilled when I came across Mark My Time. Their bookmarks are a great and easy way for your kids to time how long they have been reading. We received the bookmark timer and the booklight with timer. Both are really great. I like having two because we keep the bookmark with reading timer downstairs for when C is reading down there and he has the bookmark timer with the booklight up in his room. I love that he can easily know how long he has been reading and the booklight even shuts of when his reading time is up. It is a great tool for helping your kids to monitor their reading time.
“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.”
