Mark-My-Time because I’m reading!


Every day I’m thankful for the fact that my kids are ‘readers’. Happily for them, reading is not seen as a chore or homework. But it’s not the same for everyone.

The fact is, some kids have to sit down and practice their reading for set amount of time each day. Getting this to happen can be tricky however the nifty Mark-My-Time digital bookmark is a great little reading incentive.

Mark-My-Time includes a digital clock with a countdown timer that allows you to set reading for a certain amount of time. Better yet, the bookmark creates a reading record for each child and can be used as a cumulative timer to measure reading towards a bigger goal (just make sure the ‘reward’ is a book!).

Mark-My-Time is available online in Australia from Urban Baby and is priced at $13.95.
