Timer Visual Schedule

This afternoon, leafing through a Mayer-Johnson catalog I saw an idea I posted about on September 7, 2007.  They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

The idea was to use the "Mark-My-Time" bookmark as a visual schedule.  In 2007 I had a student who was in need of working on his independence and time management skills as he prepared to leave for the day and using the "Mark-My-Time" bookmark as a visual schedule was just what we needed.  Since then I have used the bookmark/timer adapted with some self-adhesive velcro for not only visual schedules but also for a token holder/star chart for students collecting tokens/star during differential reinforcement of zero rates of behavior or differential reinforcementb of incompatible behaviors.

It seems Mayer-Johnson and Turning Point Technology are both carrying the adapted Mark-my-Time bookmarks created by Augmentative Resources.  Of course the Mark-My-Time Book mark retails at $8.44 on (and you can find it for as low as $6.70) and the adapted version will cost you up to $30.00.  Then again, the original bookmark from Amazon and some self-adhesive velcro strips or a glue gun and some velcro receptive fabric should create the $18.00 version of the adapted bookmark/timer for less than $10.00.  Which saves you enough to by two Mark-My-Time bookmarks at the unadapted price!


  1. Rock on Kate. That is an awesome idea.

  2. This is super creative idea! Kids respond to visual displays and would work more efficiently with tasks if they had one in the classroom.
