Schedule alarm

One thing I would like to improve next year is time management. Does anyone know of an alarm clock or a website that I could set multiple alarms throughout the day to stay on schedule. (For example the alarm would go off when snack time would begin, end of math, lunch time, p.e., etc.). I would use it daily.

If you have any other suggestions for staying on schedule I would appreciate them as well.

Do you have a smart phone? You can set all the alarms you want! I have them going off all day. I let the students pick which sound for each alarm.

I use my phone.. I've even had alarms for kids who had to go to speech or take meds.. they know their "tone" and when they hear it they go. Even if I turn off my ringer, so my phone is on silent, the alarms still sound (learned that the hard way during a faculty meeting.. )

We are not allowed to have our phones out during school hours.

we're required to have ours... and even our students are encouraged to bring theirs to use for back channels, edmodo, searching, etc. starting in middle school/junior high...

I'm thinking of trying this one.

I sues my phone

I do use my phone. I have an iPhone, so I put in as many alarms as necessary - you can even pick the day(s) that you want it to sound,vto if you have an elective class on Tuesdays only, the alarm will only sound on Tuesdays! I just use a simple chirp, because it is sharp enough to hear anywhere.

During speeches, presentations, or when I time work time (I.e., you have ___ minutes to finish), I use the duck quack sound, because every kid hears it,vand knows exactly what it means!

I also use the timer feature much of the time! It has really helped keep things moving. The only suggestion I have is that it does take a little training in the beginning to remind students that it is a transition clue, to follow it to the next activity or listen for further instructions quietly and respectfully. Soon enough, it becomes second nature!

Never new about that task scheduler on the computer. That could be an option for me. I will have to try it out once I return to work. I watched the video on the website, it seems very easy to implement. I only worry about the password part because we do not have administrator privileges on our computers.

I just use a timer from the teacher store and it is loud enough that even the kids hear it regardless of where they sit.

I use the Task Manager ala Rick Morris (link above). I have a whole folder of transition tunes and I've scheduled different tunes at different times of the day, so the kids (and I!) know exactly what's up.

Do you have a Smart Board? There is a timer option on their software.
