Linky Party: Transistions

With my older students, I find that I can keep them on task better when they see how much time they have left.  They seem to work harder on math if they keep looking up to see how much time they have left.  When they finish early, it helps them pick an activity to keep them busy that will fill the required time frame, instead of picking something that takes too long or is going to be too quick.  When the time is up they know that it is time to transition to the next thing, and little time gets wasted.

I like to post the timer large, and I like to have a little fun with it so along comes the online stopwatch! (Which works great on the interactive white boards...)  They like to pick which one we use (the clock is my favorite, and of course the bomb one is their favorite)!
