Meet Your Learning-at-Home Secret Weapon: The Egg Timer
I know, it sounds like we’re recommending a tea kettle or a nice butter dish, but hear us out. An egg timer can be one of your critical learning-at-tools. Why?
Think about it. “Read for 20 minutes.” “Work independently for 40 minutes and then get back on the Zoom call.” “You can have 30 minutes of screen time as a break.” Make all of this easy by buying a no-fuss timer that your kids can set themselves and that doesn’t require you to leave your phone on the table. You can find them for less than $10 at stores like Walmart, Target, and Amazon.com, and even cheaper at second-hand shops.
