Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark #Review

I was recently sent the portable and digital Mark-My-Time bookmark. My son is 5 and his homework every night is to read 20 minutes. We always read to him at bedtime, but I do not count that time. I want him to use the 20 minutes as independent reading. He does not know how to read yet-only can sound simple 2 and 3 letter words, but I teach him to engage in each page using the photos and trying to find words he know. At first this was frustrating to him, but it is not for him to READ the page, just focus on it and make his own conclusions. Together, we read the book he chose at bedtime and it is then he will hear the entire story. To make it independent time, he needs to remain independent so to have this bookmark arrive in the mail the second week of school was perfect! I simply set it to count down from any time-in our case it is set at 20 minutes and he knows when time is up so we can mark his reading calendar.

  1. That is such a clever device! My son would LOVE it. He loves timers. He's 3, and gets deeply engrossed in books. I'll have to check this out.

  2. I saw these at the teacher supply store when I went for bulletin board stuff. I think this is a terrific idea. My son gets easily distracted but I think something he can see timing him would help. I need to get him one!

  3. This is a great product for older kids when they start getting assigned timed reading for homework. my daughter is in 4th grade, and they have to read 20 minutes a night for school. We assign an hour for them from 4th grade on!
