Time Timer MOD with Sky Blue Cover
When I was homeschooling my five, an area I had to thoughtfully address was time management. Like many homeschoolers, it was easier to drift through the day on island time than to run a more regimented routine à la Sound of Music. This is an area that public schools may outshine us. School buses pull away from the curb, assignments are turned in, and recess ends, all like clockwork. Keeping to a schedule more adequately prepares a child for adulthood than the nonchalant attitude that is so easy to fall into.
Time Timer MOD is here to help. The primary purpose of the Time Timer MOD is to provide a visual cue of the passage of time while being able to stand up to all sorts of child-inspired abuse. Operation is intuitive and straightforward – the patented red disk moves as time elapses. The Time Timer MOD is a size that is portable and easy to use anywhere, from a desk to your kitchen counter. The Time Timer MOD features a removable silicone cover that offers an extra layer of protection from the bumps and falls that are part of a homeschooler’s life. The time disc may be moved manually in either direction and can be set at any point on the face. You can use the visual depiction only or add the alarm to signal the end of a time period.
For younger children who have no sense of time, Time Timer MOD provides the ability to see how much time is left without having to know how to tell time. Time Timer MOD can also be used to keep kids on task for schoolwork, chores, and music practice, to reduce conflict on sharing a coveted toy, to reign in screen time, and, for some children, to ease their transitions and relieve the stress and anxiety that comes with change.
Time Timer MOD features a removable, silicone cover and durable clear lens to protect the red timer disk from sticky or curious fingers, small size for portability, and an on/off switch for the audible alert, anytime you need to hear the beep or prefer silence. One AA battery required for operation is not included.

My daughter thinks time just waits for her. She took forever to do anything. Try to be somewhere on time, not if she is going too, she just thought time waited for her. I thought it would work itself out once she could tell time but nope. Enter this timer for our lessons or household activities. She could see how much time she had left and that it was not waiting for her to ask her many questions or ponder all of the colors of the rainbow. We both LOVE IT!!!
I really like this timer. I like that you can have it silent or on alarm. My 10 year old has autism. She struggles with transitions between tasks during the day. She doesn't have trouble telling time, but having a visual reminder of how much time remaining (the red) on a task will be very helpful for her. I'm looking forward to using this in our homeschool this year (my first year homeschooling).
I love this timer. It is fantastic for my toddler to see the time in a chunk. It has been so useful for things other than school, too. Very versatile.
Spelling you see was definitely a problem until we got this lovely clock. It has made our lives so much easier, and my 4 year old really is getting a grasp of time.
