Thurday's Tip... Another hint from Henley


Okay, friends, I hope you enjoy my tips as much as I enjoy remembering to pass them along! I couldn't wait until Tuesday because you need to go ahead & order this item if you decide you want it for your child's Easter baskets! Our children love to read, but they are also required to read for 20 minutes every evening. It's easy to lose track of time on a clock or to forget to write down what time you started reading. However, with the Mark-my-Time digital bookmark, your child is timed effortlessly. Children who are old enough to read independently can easily time themselves and write down how many minutes they've read in a particular sitting. These bookmarks have made our children want to read MORE! It's fun to see just how high you can make the number climb. These bookmarks sell for $8.95 in different colors such as pink, green, blue, purple, and yellow. Amazon.com offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. You can also order them from Target.com, Amazon.com, and Learning Express. You will love them!

As a former teacher, these are great! Kids are always asked to keep up with their reading time and this is a fabulous tool for doing just that! And what a cute idea for Easter baskets...so clever!
