1. Start the day 

Help students as they arrive at the beginning of the day by setting the Time Timer for 5 minutes as soon as the bell rings. This supports students in getting settled in the classroom and into their seats with materials ready, and for teachers to take attendance.

2. Centers and group work  

Use the Time Timer to ease any transition in the classroom and to keep everyone on track as they get ready for and switch centers, participate in group work, or put materials away before the next activity.   

3. Reading time  

Teachers know how beneficial daily reading time is. Give students a visual representation of time for their daily reading to reduce the need for verbal cues and allow students to fully immerse themselves in reading with a clear visual of how much time is left.
