{Cool for School} Mark My Time Digital Bookmark


Has your child ever come home with an assingment to read for a certain amount of time? Have you ever had them come to you every two minutes to ask if time was up? If so then Mark-My-Time is here to help! This handy little bookmark has a built in digital timer so that kids can keep track while they read! My oldest son loves reading so it is never a problem with him, but my younger son will avoid it as much as possible. He is more about gadgets and numbers so as soon as he saw me take this out of it's shipping envelope and found out what it was he claimed it!

The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark is made of durable polyethylene plastic and comes in six great colors – yellow, red, fuchsia, neon green, blue and purple. At the top is a digital clock that’s powered by an inexpensive, replaceable watch battery (included). You can either set a countdown timer with an alarm that alerts students when they have completed their required reading time or a cumulative timer, which tracks total time read throughout the day/week/month. You can also simply set it to display the time when not using it to track minutes.



It easily fits between the pages of any book, and has really started helping encourage my son to read more than he was. I won't say it is a miracle product that has turned my son into a reading fiend, but anything that gets him away from video games gets an A+ in my book! The timers are easy enough for him to figure out on his own and this is one bookmark that won't end up worn out and torn like other bookmarks do.

The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark has received the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, as well as the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval. It has also been named Creative Child Kids’ Product of the Year and has won The Family Review Center gold award and the Fat Brain Toy Award in the category of teaching toys and tools. In addition to serving as a useful tool during reading sessions, it is ideal for timing music practice sessions, timed math fact activities and homework study sessions.


Buy it!
The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark is available nationwide at leading bookstores, discount drug chains and wholesale clubs at an average retail price of $8.95 and can also be purchased online

I like that that you can record the minutes read with the touch of a button. My kids have to read 30 mins. per night for homework so this would be a good way to keep track.

I love the colors and just the overall concept. My first grade daughter has to read for at least 10 minutes per night for her English class and I think this would help her keep track of the time she spends reading!
