Time has a habit of running away on you but now at last you can see where it has gone! Sandtimers provide a visual reference of time in the classroom and it's progression. Timers begin at 1 minute. They are an excellent teaching tool for games, oral language school activities and even as teacher devices. Digital timers give us a numerical value for time. Timers, both sand and digital, are an excellent tool to help develop independent time keeping. They are fun, durable and inexpensive.
