Mark My Time – Digital Bookmark & Digital Metronome – Track your child’s reading and music times easily! Review!

Mark My Time is a great new tracking product for kids! Their digital bookmark starts off with a basic clock so your child can know the time it is and then you can set it to count up or count down. This digital bookmark has received countless awards for not only its ability of tracking time but more importantly its motivating children to read more!

Mark My Time also carries a digital metronome for helping track music practice. I remember when I was younger I played the flute my mother always made my practice in half hour intervals. I never really had a way of tracking my time since it was so loud I often had to practice the cellar where there were no clocks. I would have LOVED having this to track my time. This timer helps track practice time but also is a digital metronome all in one! It received Winner of the National Association of Music Merchants award for “Best new Small Good”.
From their website:
The built-in metronome helps students get with the beat. Featuring an adjustable tempo range of 40/210 bpm, it also includes 5 rhythm settings (with an accent note). The mark-my-time digital bookmark for music also has an enhanced sound that you’re sure to love – the old time solid tick-tock that comes from wind up, wooden metronomes. The sound is less distracting than the high tech pitch that so many digital metronomes of today have chosen. An integrated clip allows students to attach the metronome quickly and easily to sheet music or music stand and it’s slim design allows it to fit easily into any music book.

We were luckily enough to test one of these out. We received the Red Digital Bookmark. I showed it to my8 year old son when it arrived and he immediately wanted to use it. We took it out of its packaging and set it up. It came with easy to read and use directions. He loved being able to track his time. He has since used it to read 30 minutes every other day. We have had it for almost 2 weeks now and he can now set it and track it on his own. It’s that simple to use!Every year my son’s school sends home a form for contest on reading. They give you X amount of hours that you need to read in order to enter. Tracking this time was somewhat difficult for my son. I would use the clock as a timer but would often forget or lose track of the time, or forget when we started. Now we these forms come home we will no longer struggle to keep track of our reading times.
