I feel sorry for the kid who gets stuck practicing the trumpet alongside this thing. Not only are they forced to learn an instrument, but they’re also being forced to learn time management skills. Goodbye childhood, hello paper route. Of course through the eyes of a parent, the Time Tracker probably seems like the perfect way to keep kids ‘on track.’ There are three sections that can be programmed to light up after specific time intervals, as well as six sound effects that can be used to indicate when time is running out. If anything, the Time Tracker at least puts an end to the “I didn’t know” excuse, since it looks pretty hard to misinterpret.
You can find it on the Learning Resources website for $38.95.
