How Much Longer?: Increasing Work Completion

My students need 8 audible time timers to help them stay focused and complete work.

My Students

"Five more minutes!" calls a teacher. How long is five minutes? My students need a visual indicator of the passage of time to pace themselves.

My students have special education needs and who range K-6 grades.

They attend a low income school with about 85% of our student population receiving free or reduced lunch. Many are English Language Learners or have significant communication delays and need visual supports for learning.

My Project

These visual timers will help my special needs students develop independence in completing various tasks. These tasks can range from continuing to work at solving math problems independently to helping the dawdling student to learn the transition activities (get coat, line up) for recess or specialist.

Visual timers would be a great addition to our school.

As the school psychologist, I have teachers that come to me for strategies and ideas. Visual timers are something that often come to mind as a strategy to help a student stay focused. Right now, we don't have any of these valuable tools in our building. With this set of timers, many classrooms can access this support.
