Using a visual timer can be a helpful tool when students are having behavior or work completion issues.  However some of the timers out there are, well, boring.  Outloud Timer 2 is an interactive, visual timer app that is engaging for kids and useful for you!


It is super easy to set up and you can set it for minutes or seconds.  Once you set your time then you, or the student, can take draw a path on the iPad. You can make it a straight line, a winding path, or a bunch of loops.  As soon as you lift your finger a cute little penguin appears and waddles his way down the road you made.


When he gets to the end the time is up. I loved how the background was fun with a volcano and tunnel.  With the items in the background you could even use this app for following directions or basic concepts! Gotta love those double duty apps!



You can head to iTunes to download the app HERE.  It is about $2 US.  It may seem a bit high for a timer app, but when you think of the applications it has for other goals and the interactive quality it is a pretty good price. Plus, it is ad free, which is another bonus.
