Hourglass Sand Timers are such a versatile resource to assist with managing time and behaviour at home and in the classroom. We love these sand timers because they come in three fun colourful designs and sizes, with different times for each to suit the activity and individual user's needs.
Timers are a useful resource to help kids learn to understand the complex and abstract concept of time. Hourglass timers provide a clear visual aid to support this understanding. Judge how much time is left by the amount of sand left in the top of the timer. Once all the sand falls to the bottom - time's up!
Sand Timers assist with:
Managing tricky transition times
Developing an understanding of time
Managing behaviour, attention and concentration
Understanding how much time is left for a particular activity
Understanding how much time until the next activity begins
