Using this in my classroom has reduced the amount of managing I have to do during centers to ZERO. Students know what is expected of them and this timer provides cues as to how much time they have left, when they should switch centers, and when they should be working. I get to sit back, relax and enjoy TEACHING rather than managing.
I’ve received feedback from teachers that this has helped to improve classroom management during Daily 5 type activities.

Here is a quick run through:
This timer was made custom based on a buyers feedback. Take a look.
Blue -Get ready (1 min)
Green- Working (13 min)
Yellow- Check your work (2 min)
Red- Finishing touches (2 min)
Purple- 2 minute star/song transition
THIS TRANSITION TIME GIVES THE TEACHER A CHANCE TO PREPARE FOR THE NEXT GROUP OF STUDENTS COMING TO THE CENTER.
This product is amazing because students quickly learn what is expected of them and the teacher no longer needs to:
• give directions in between centers
• remember to set a timer (this was my biggest issue)
• tell students how much time is left
• remind students to start cleaning up
If you would like a Classroom Management Timer to be modified for your needs, let me know what you are looking for, and I will figure it out. This product is a published video and cannot be edited by the customer.
