Our First GIVEAWAY!!

I have noticed that all over the web it seems that bloggers give things away.

And no I don't just mean their advice. Although mine does seem particularly valuable. ; )

I mean real stuff. Cool stuff. FREE stuff. It has me feeling totally left out, so...

That said I am pleased to announce my very first official giveaway!

I am giving away a Time Tracker in honor of school, (and homework), being just right around the corner

*best announcer voice*

Tell us Bob, What does the Time Tracker do?

Well, for those of us with visual kiddos who don't have a strong grasp of telling time but sure do want to know what is going on every second of every day, it fills the need.

Here is what the website says,

It's never been easier to keep kids on track! Lighted sections of this unique electronic timer alert kids to time remaining. Program green, yellow and red sections and 6 sound effects easily to indicate that time is running out. Features 180° viewing, large, easy-to-read LCD display; volume control and pause feature.
What a great way to teach your child to stay on task! And did you noitce it is mutlisensory? Love it!

I don't know about you, but for us, we are obsessed with setting the timer. Honestly, as Gabriel gets older, he does understand time (a little better this summer I think), but the visual reminders and supports in our home are invaluable.

The big question, HOW DO I WIN IT?

1.) Sign up to follow my blog. You can choose Facebook (Networked Blogs) or Blogger (Google account) and then send me an email to let me know you did. Obviously if you are already a follower all you have to do is the second step.


2.) Leave a comment on any of my posts. Yes, any of them, but please remember to write your name clearly in the comment so I know who to contact!

You have until Monday August 17th at 7am PST to join and write your comment. There is a maximum of one entry per person and it is open to everyone 18 and older who reads this blog.

I will have my darling boys choose a winner by RANDOM drawing. I will post the winner on my blog on Monday August 17th at which time if you are the winner, you should email me your contact info so I can ship you the awesome prize. : )





See how great that works for counting down?

I would love to win this....but when I click to follow your blog...it says it doesn't exist. But I am looking at it....I am confused.

Hartley said...

Jen, I set myself up to follow the blog with no problem. Hopefully it is just a glitch in the Blogger system that has gone away. Try again, and if it doesn't work, let me know. Same for anyone else that is having problems! H

Jenn said...

I would love to win this too! Pick me! Pick me!

Just kidding. You are a great blogger and I can't wait until your book comes out!

It is so funny that you are looking at this because I've been looking at a lot of tools lately too and saw this really interesting timer. I saw another timer where where a patch of red visibly becomes smaller as there is less and less time and then it beep at the end when time is up. I love that one. I found it on www.difflearn.com. Things like this are crucial for kids who need motivation and time reference.

if you don't mind, i'd like to refer to your contest on my blog. let me know.

I found your blog through the SPD group - you commented on someone's request for cooking with kid ideas. I loved you ideas so I checked out the blog - love it also.
I am new to SPD and always excited to get more ideas.
I am an art teacher and both my kids are visual learners so I would love the time tracker! I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)

DARN... I just saw this! A day late and a dollar short, as usual. Thanks for the info, though... I think this is something that my family could benefit from.
