Visual Timers

Help me give my students a good visual to stay on task. The Time Timers are a good visual for my students with disabilities. In addition, the tissue and sanitizer is always a need.

My Students

Teaching my students can be challenging. Some need extra support in developing positive behaviors, some need extra support learning how to read, others have trouble understanding math concepts.

Each one is unique and as such, each one has a key that I must find that will unlock "how" they learn.

I love this puzzle. It takes time and it takes a relationship to figure out what will work for each one.

My students live in an area that presents its own challenges. I try to be consistent in my approach to give them stability in this one small area of their life. I ask them to do their best. I love seeing them persevere, even when it's a struggle.

My Project

Some of my students have a difficult time staying on task. There are various distractions that surround them. That stimulation has a way of keeping their attention. Some timers don't work very well because my younger students don't have a sense of time.

The Time Timer has a visual countdown that is great for students not yet able to tell time AND helps encourage independence and productivity for those with disabilities or special needs such as autism or ADHD.

I look forward to trying these with my students and see how much better they do with staying on task. Thank you for considering my request!
