I have used this is my classroom for three years. It works like a charm. The students love to see how many gum balls they can earn during the given time. I have either set the timer for the full amount of work time or set it for smaller increments of time. As a reward, if they reach the goal, I sometimes give a piece of bubble gum, or something toward a classroom goal for some other reward...For example I might give them a letter toward building the word Compliments.

The best visual timers! My kids ask for me to pull them up if I forget, they love this tool!

Try this 2-minute timer for short tasks such as tidying up. Pupils must finish before the marbles are all in the jar!

I love these!  Animated timers that you can put on the projector.  Gives students a visual for the time they have remaining.  Plus a fun surprise (noise cue) when time is up! :)
