    We primarily use this timer during bed time. Our kids used to wake up at 4:30 to 6:30 and come into our room again and again, with no concept of 'Wake Up Time' (as most kids I realize). We set the timer to stay green until 7am, it turns yellow for 2 minutes (a warning it is almost wake up time) then it turns red, signalling wake time. If they have to use the bathroom, or need us for any reason, they know it is ok to leave the room. But in normal situations if it is not red, they go back into the bedroom and wait until it turns red. There was a learning curve for us and the kids, but this item works great! I would recommend the adapter, it requires 4 AA batteries for the lights, and lithium batteries for the clock, which burn down fast.

    I used this product to manage me as a teacher with my mini lessons in Readers Workshop. I also used this timer to manage student workstations and to help children budget time while completing independent work. Unfortunately, like many other posters have mentioned, it can be unreliable. In June it worked just fine; however, when I returned to the classroom in August it was no longer working. Weird, right?! I thought it was the batteries so I replaced them with 4 brand new batteries. It still didn't work. After looking over the manual it said you would probably need to change the backup batteries when changing the other batteries. I searched high and low for the LR44 batteries (aka backup batteries) and finally found some. I replaced those as well and it still will not power on. This is very frustrating for me because I'm a classroom teacher and do not have the budget to keep replacing the timer each school year. :( The bottom line is that I would only recommend this device to somebody prepared to replace it yearly. I'm not that person because I already spend so much of my own money on my classroom and students.

    Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

    We received as a gift on Christmas, purchased from Young Explorers. At first, we used it to signal how much time toddler had left before transition to next activity. Then, we used it for potty training and had the timer set for every 30 minutes. We were using it constantly for a month before we had to change the batteries. Then a couple of weeks later, it seemed to malfunction again (a signal we thought was time for another battery change). The digital display disappeared and the green and yellow lights remained on, and replacing thet batteries did not fix the problem. I really liked the timer when it worked, but now I'm hoping that there's a similar product out there that's more durable.

    Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

    This is a terrible timer. It is hard to use and the menu, start and enter buttons all have to be pushed really hard to get them to even work. I spend more time trying to change the settings than actually getting the timer to work. Very disappointing as I cannot use it in my classroom.

      Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

      I am very disappointed with this product. The buttons are either not working or too sensitive and you pass by the time you want to set and then have to start the programming over. It would have been so easy to put a simple timer set button and then a start time button but no! You have to go through many steps of programming each time you want to set a new time. Even to simply start the already programmed time you have to push a series of buttons! So annoying! And to remember the right sequence, it is not easy....
      definitely not worth the price.

      I was using this in a high school classroom, 1/2 of the day. After a few days it stopped working. I switched from batteries to an adapter and it still doesn't work. The only thing that comes up on the screen are 3 digital lines between 1-3 inches long.

      Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

      We have a son with Aspergers and a daughter who is home schooled and was excited to get the item and the sound did not work out of the gate. Even after resetting it and adjusting the volume it just does not work.

      For our daughter it would have been perfect for her when she is not paying attention to the light we have the sound backup. Welp, that did not work so I am quite disappointed.

      The other reviews on the item and having issues is spot on. Guess I should have researched more.

        Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

        We bought this timer as a visual reminder for meetings so time didn't pass by, there was a visual reminder which has sounds to notify the changing of sections. Although there is a volume switch we have always used the Time Tracker with the volume on. We have since found a hundred other uses for it. We have timed dinner with it, got ready to go out and even homework. The timer sections can be used for a few seconds or for an hour the options are endless and although getting the correct combination to get into the menu and setting it up can be tricky to start with after a few uses you soon pick it up. We use the Time Tracker as a fantastic visual behaviour monitor.

        Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

        I used this timer with my center rotations. When it worked, it was fabulous. My first graders followed it perfectly: Green- work, Yellow- start cleaning up your center, Red - move to the next center. The problem is it often didn't work. It seemed to work in spurts. Good for a couple of weeks and then break. It has now been broken for a week and I think it's finished. I replaced all of the batteries (including the $10 button batteries) and the light is stuck on yellow and the time dislplay is completely blank. This timer is such a great idea but poorly made. I have 29 days of school left so I will make due without it. :(

        Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:

        I have a classroom for emotionally disturbed and behaviorally challenged students. I typically have about ten students that come and go throughout the day. The logistics can be a nightmare....trying to keep up with who is coming and going while, at the same time, giving meaningful lessons for 6 different grades. The timer is a life saver. However, it takes a bit of getting used to. Learning to set the three timers can be painful. For example, I set the green light for one schedule. I then turn to my "wall of schedules" to see what I want to set the second timer for. If I don't push a button, it goes off in a few seconds and I have to start over. In addition, it does not allow one to start the first timer and go back later to start another timer. So, I have to write down how much time to place in each section and enter the data all at once. NEVERTHELESS, ONCE YOU CATCH ON TO THE HOW-TO'S, IT IS AN AWESOME TOOL!!!! I would precaution that it is not very user friendly, BUT I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT!!!
