Use with students to time them on math facts, or to set up a specific time frame for working on homework. Students who need frequent breaks can work for 10 minute periods, take a break, and then reset the timer for the next session. Goals can be useful for children (i.e. "See how many problems you can do in 5 minutes." OR "When the timer goes off I will check you." OR "Let's see how many ideas or correct sentences you can write in 5 minutes.") The uses are endless!
