I recently received the Mark-My-Time bookmark to review and have really fallen in love with this product.
What it is:
A timer which allows you to track most importantly, your child’s required reading times. Choose to set a countdown timer with alarm that alerts the reader when they have completed their required reading time or set the cumulative timer which stores time over multiple reading sessions until the reader chooses to delete it. Its handy bookmark format is great for leaving it right where they left off. It is made of durable polyethylene plastic and is currently available in three hot colors.
The bookmark format also makes it handy for using as a timer for homework in general. You know how when you tell your children that they have to do their homework before watching television, or for that matter for stopping them from going longer while watching television. I think this great little gadget is a godsend for parents who need to track and/or time their children’s activities, whether it’s reading, television, video games or outdoor play time. The bright colors make it appealing to children of all ages. I like the purple the best.
Maureen Farinella developed the Mark My Time Bookmark to help her daughter keep track of her reading every day for school and to help motivate her to read. Since her daughter read for a few minutes at all different times of the day it was difficult to keep track of her reading and how much reading she was doing every day. So, Maureen created a product that fits easily into a book and stored reading time.
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 set the cumulative timer which stores time over multiple reading sessions until the reader chooses to delete it. The bookmark measures .5Hx1.75Wx7.75L" and is very thin. It’s long enough for most books and wide enough for the display to be easily read. Made for children five years and older, these bookmarks can be found on MarkMyTime.com for $8.95 for a single bookmark or at most mass retailers such as target and Amazon.
The great people at Mark-My-Time are also giving one lucky reader the chance to win their own bookmark. The winner will receive one
