Mark-My-TIme Book Mark Giveaway



Neighbors,

So glad to see you out here at the Fence!  Here is a really great Gift Basket idea.  It is a digital bookmark called Mark-My-Time.  It is a portable and funway to monitor reading time.  It has a programmable countdown timer with alarm, a cumulative timer for multi-session reading and is all digital.  The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark is great for children who don't really care for reading and you can set a specific amount of time for them to read.  They just read until the alarm goes off.  Now, with my children it is handy to limit their reading.  I have 6 readers who all would carry a book with them throughout their waking hours.  Lunch time-"Can I read a book?"  Riding in the vehicle-"Can I bring a book?"  I even caught one of them sitting in the kitchen reading a book while they were supposed to be watching dinner!  We had a friend one time ask if he could take a picture of them sitting around reading because he could never get his grandchildren to read.  Anyway, you can also use it to limit reading if necessary.  Like 15  minutes before lights out.  Or maybe 20 minutes of reading before going outside for awhile.  Homeschoolers need to read a book for a required amount of time each day?  Use the Mark-My-Time digital bookmark.

Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark
About Mark-My-Time digital bookmark:

"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.

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.

Also ideal for timing music practice sessions, timed math fact activities, meetings, homework study sessions, cooking and interval training when exercising.

Parents and teachers from across the country confirm that the mark-my-time digital bookmark is the best and easiest way to monitor reading time and keep kids excited about reading so they'll want to read more."
Some of my favorite reprints and a Mark My Time digital bookmark.

I have visited the Mark My Time website and just LOVE this product! I think it would be a great aid to my mother, who is an elementary school teacher. If I won, I would give it to her to use in her classroom for dedicated reading time!!

I'm hoping this will both increase and keep track of reading time. I can't imagine anyone would want to limit reading time!

While I should probably use it to limit time reading, I love to read as much as my kids. If they would use it as a way to increase reading, I'm all for it.
