Time concepts are not only difficult to master, they provide the foundation for a variety of other skills that impact everyday adult life. Understanding time is necessary for scheduling and planning, smoothly transitioning from one task to another and understanding the relationship between events.
Many children experience difficulty with transitioning from one task to another. Particularly as kids become more independent when they begin walking or have intentions of walking, time-keeping can start to be a very valuable tool. Whether at home or about; whether you're a parent or a teacher, laying down a foundational understanding of how time impacts our everyday surroundings is an important step in learning and growth.
Concepts such as the passage of time, how much time is left or when something is over all play an important role in establishing logical and complex problem solving in young children. Learning about time and setting regular schedules adds predictability to children's lives, gives them a better understanding of the sequence of events, helps them link events, and ultimately gives them the tools they need to better function independently.
Our selection of timekeeping tools includes wristwatch reminders, teacher’s countdown classroom timers and visual countdown timers for kids to provide visual cues such as color changes or liquid compartments. We also carry learning tools designed to help students read the clock.
Visual productivity tools for kids and adults, whether in school, at home or in a therapy setting, providing everyday learning opportunities. Use a timer to set minimum or maximum limits for activities, provide reminders for what's next and use them to remember to complete a task.
