  1. Would love the test timer watch. Not only could I use it for tests but my ESE students can use it to time ,time on task! Great idea!

  2. There are some great things, but I think only the Timer Watch would be most beneficial to my Toddlers & Preschool Children. I’d like to see more things for this age group that ties in with preparing them in the Core Areas for Kindergarten.

  3. Fabulous timer. I also appreciated the info on the young scientists contest. Kids are so into making videos I think it would be fun for them!

  4. I would love to win the Time Timer Watch PLUS. It would be great for those students who need to stay on track and focused.

  5. My students would love the timer watch! I would allow the student of the week to use it during their special week!

  6. My kindergarten students love a timer. I would use it as a reward and for Dibel testing. We would play a minute to win it with saying our ABC’s.

  7. Thanks for the very practical timer giveaway! The captain citrus lesson is right on time as we are learning about how important vitamin C is in relation to scurvy during our pirates theme unit study.

  8. Wow! This looks like the perfect item for my daughter who is 15 years old and struggles with time issues.
    Thank you.

  9. I would love to share this Time Timer watch with my students. I use the desktop Time Timer several times a day and think it would be so much fun to expose the students to wearing it as a watch.

  10. I love that time timer watch! That would be so useful everyday! I probably wouldn’t get to use it much, though, because my team members would be borrowing it! LOL

  11. This would be cool for the children to see and use in my classroom. It would help us get to the places we are suppose to go to on time! We need all the help we can get being we are late most of the time! The Time Timer watch could be used in the classroom every day! I have the desktop time timer and we use it each and every day!
