A big thanks to the Mark-My-Time company for this awesome new product..
You know what a bookmark is, but do you know what a digital bookmark is?
Well this product is a bookmark which does what a bookmark does keeps your place. However, this is no
ordinary bookmark, its been upgraded to a digital timer bookmark. You get a choice of 6 bright colored
bookmarks, made of durable polyethylene plastic and very slim fitting any type of book.
The purpose of this bookmark is to test your childs speed maybe test how fast it takes you to do a
puzzle in a suduko book, or read a page of music, while keeping your place.
I first thought of this as a great way to allow a child to read a favorite book and see how long it
takes them every day. I use to do this when I would do a suduko puzzle book how long it takes me to
figure a puzzle out and time it..each time i got faster and faster.. So I think this idea was an
awesome one to put a timer on a bookmark, not only will it make you see how good your speed is, but
make it fun as well. Turn any book into a fun game.
This is meant for ages 5 and up. In my opinion I think anyone really can use it, not only kids. If you
want to test yourself and increase your reading ability then this would work perfect for you as well.
Here is an example of using this bookmark:
If your child has a favorite book, maybe a Dr Seuss book. Then allow them to read it through
with this bookmark timer going. If you just want to mark an area in the book doesn't have to be the
entire book right away but a portion of it you can do so as well. Now after a one read over, Maybe in
few hours allow them to read it again and see if they read it faster or not as fast, or let the reread
the book tomorrow and see how faster they are getting every time with the MARK-MY-TIME DIGITAL
BOOKMARK. You can do this as long as you like, and you'll be impressed how much faster their reading
abilities are getting.
IT REALLY DOES WORK!!
I would know since I tried it, but honestely it does. When your being timed, you get the feeling of it
being a game and trying to beat the clock is your goal. Haven't you ever ran a mile and then tried to
beat your score every time. How about just playing a computer online against others, and trying to get
your word or whichever game your playing on the board before you run out of time. It sortof works just
like that making you a faster reader. Which helps any child when they grow up and have to read novels
for school reports, or help you improve your reading.
Here is a description from the company:
