Mark My Time Digital Bookmark *Review & Giveaway



Summer is in full swing and I don't want the kids to get away from the 'book's for too long. I have a reluctant reader who is finally starting to 'get it' in the reading sphere. I want to keep him moving forward while we have some momentum, which is hard while we are on summer break.
I devised a plan to reward him for each hour he reads, and the way he tracks it?

Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark!



You can use the timer as a count down timer with alarm or as a cumulative timer. Since he is working toward accumulating time, we chose to use that method. He writes down his time in a notebook along with the book he is reading.

I am encouraging the kids to read for 30 minutes per day. They can easily get this during their morning devotions, but most of them are choosing to read more than that. I am a big time reader and I hope my influence has modeled the love of reading to them.

We plan during the school year to continue the 30 minute rule, and will have a set time to read a specific book to go along with what we are studying. The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark is great for saving their spot in the book and letting them know when their half hour is up.

United Art and Education has a wonderful catalog of resources for home schooling, art work, and the home. Be sure to check out the great products as you start planning your school year!
