As a teacher, I have to say that I LOVE my Radius. This to me is a must have in any classroom. The features that I love are 1.) You can use the Radius as a standard cd player as well 2.) The cards a sturdy and durable and in any event if one of the cards became damaged, you can still us the Radius to locate the card 3.) It comes in this really nice carrying case to prevent damage 4.) The cd sets are made for different grade levels 5.) It's very simple for children to use 6.) In each card set there are teacher notes that explain varies ways of presenting the skill to the students 7.) In each set there is an answer key...so you can follow along with students and assess their answers 8.) It's a great informal testing tool 9.) It's great for small group instruction, independent practice and centers 10.) All the cards in any set you purchase are numbered in order and the key lets you know the answers and what words the students will learn on each card 11.) There are review cards after all of the lessons 12.) You can use up to four headphones or use speakers 13.) The look, listen, write and speak cards have the students to look at the words, listen to how the words are pronounced and sound (phonics), write the words on paper, and my favorite is the speak/record feature. This allows students to record how they sound when pronouncing words 14.) You can buy sets that fit your classroom needs

I was quite surprised when I opened the box, I thought it was going to be a small device, but it is large with easy to see functions...overall, I think that this is one of my best educational purchases I've purchased in awhile. The students love it and it's hands-on which makes it more enjoyable. The Radius and cd card sets are pricey but your money will be well spent!

The concept is good: A visual timer with a yellow warning light/buzzer and a red final timer light. But unless I am totally missing something about its operation, you can't see how much time has elapsed. It is a black box. I set it for 60 mins with a warning at 55 mins and ... then I have no idea if it is working or how much time has elapsed. The only way I can answer my son's "How much time is left?" question is to have a SECOND timer -- a digital one -- that I start at the same time as this one, running side by side. This seems silly. Until this product gets upgraded, my recommendation is to go with a simple digital timer or even a sand 'hourglass' that you can watch and monitor the passage of time

    Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini:

    I plan to use this with my students to vary instruction. It can be used 1-on-1, in small groups up to 4 users w/ headphones, or as a whole group activity. I plan to use it mostly for 1-on-1 or small group practice of skills that were taught but are in need of extra practice or extension.

    Please make a time tracker "short"

        Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini:

        The concept is great, but I feel you could make a Time Tracker Short that would better meet the needs of a lot of parents. Please consider making a 25-30 min timer that functions in 1 minute increments. Also please consider changing how the product starts by allowing the timer to be reset simply by pressing the start button after the light goes out. As is I have to turn the power to the unit off and then back on. I tried using this product in my home day care to help the kids know how much time they were taking in the bathroom after eating lunch. Each child needs to go potty, wash hands, brush teeth, and wash their face. Some children were taking a very long time fooling around and playing in the sink. I got this to keep them on task. However the design is not user friendly for kids. You should be able to press a reset button, and then the start button when a new child enters the bathroom for their turn. I love the idea of the colored light and the warning system, it just needs some revamping.

            Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini:

            My work environment includes many meetings. This tool is useful to all attendees seeing time is getting to an end. Visually embeds for better planning for a next meeting and visually encourages returning to desk work versus continuing to converse and use up valuable desk work time. Yes there are many adult meeting strategies. They are used. This visual is best alongside. A great tool and used. I had a concern with a couple reviews that the product was defective however the customer service seems wonderful and I know I can contact customer service for a replacement. I hope you try it!

                Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini:

                I wish you could start the timer just by pressing the Start Button. Instead you have to turn the volume dial to the off position and then turn the volume dial back on and then press the Start button. The timer worked in this manner until 11 months after receipt. The red light comes on when the volume dial is turned on but the start button does not work anymore. Unacceptably short service life.

                    Wow I don't think I ever bought a product that stopped working after the first use. Put in the batteries set the timer to 10 and 5 green light went on then yellow then a horrible screeching sound and POP. Now it does nothing...no sounds no lights... changed batteries let it sit for a day to see if it would reset. Incredibly disappointed and either the company should file suit against the parts manufacturer or they need to hire competent testers. Complete joke of a product.

                            This item is poorly made and doesn't work at all. It is ten minutes off! The 5 minute warning goes off, but the red light never comes on after the 5 minutes. I would not recommend spending one penny on this. After looking around, I saw that other people were unhappy with the quality of the products. I normally like Learning Resource products, I just don't know why they would continue to put their name on such a poor product.

                              With the Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini I can easily set the timer in five minute increments up to two hours, and push start. It is not at all complicated to use, just turn the Green dial to the time limit and push Start. You can even turn the yellow dial to a warning time which is great since kids sometimes can get lost in activities.

                              The Time Tracker Mini is about five inches tall and made of a durable plastic. With 360 audio and visual alarms, it is great for kids to see at any angle. It would be perfect for home or classroom use! There is also volume control on the back. It does require 3 AAA batteries, which are not included, but I like that it takes batteries rather than trying to plug it in somewhere. The only problem I had with it is once I set it and push Start, if my boys push Start again it resets it. My solution though has been to just keep it up on the counter where they can see it but know not to touch it. Overall though it has been great for tv time limits, time outs, and outside time. It is easier for them to look at the tracker than try to figure out a regular clock at their ages of 3 and 4. They know when the timer (or warning) goes off that their time is up.

                                This timer really is as simple to set up as they say. I'm going to use it this year to get my kids (and me!) out the door on time. My oldest and I both have ADHD, so time management has always been a challenge. And, who knows what other uses we'll find for it: homework, reading time, video games, etc.

                                As a teacher, I have to say that I LOVE my Radius. This to me is a must have in any classroom. The features that I love are 1.) You can use the Radius as a standard cd player as well 2.) The cards a sturdy and durable and in any event if one of the cards became damaged, you can still us the Radius to locate the card 3.) It comes in this really nice carrying case to prevent damage 4.) The cd sets are made for different grade levels 5.) It's very simple for children to use 6.) In each card set there are teacher notes that explain varies ways of presenting the skill to the students 7.) In each set there is an answer key...so you can follow along with students and assess their answers 8.) It's a great informal testing tool 9.) It's great for small group instruction, independent practice and centers 10.) All the cards in any set you purchase are numbered in order and the key lets you know the answers and what words the students will learn on each card 11.) There are review cards after all of the lessons 12.) You can use up to four headphones or use speakers 13.) The look, listen, write and speak cards have the students to look at the words, listen to how the words are pronounced and sound (phonics), write the words on paper, and my favorite is the speak/record feature. This allows students to record how they sound when pronouncing words 14.) You can buy sets that fit your classroom needs

                                I was quite surprised when I opened the box, I thought it was going to be a small device, but it is large with easy to see functions...overall, I think that this is one of my best educational purchases I've purchased in awhile. The students love it and it's hands-on which makes it more enjoyable. The Radius and cd card sets are pricey but your money will be well spent!

                                  Does the timer have an auto reset feature -- or does it need to be manually reset each time it's used?

                                    The Time Tracker Timer must be set manually every time.
