Staying On Track

Looking for an easy way to keep your kiddos on track during center time???  If so, then check out this free online stopwatch.  It’s SUPER easy to use and it is a great visual for your kids.  After a few days you will even be able to let one of them be in charge or resetting it after each rotation.  stopwatch

We both use this stopwatch each day during our four {20 minute} center rotations.  We keep it displayed on our Promethean board and it helps our students get their work done during each rotation and stay on track.  We’ve tried lots of other time management methods and this seems to work better than ANYTHING else!!!
