As a teacher, I have to say that I LOVE my Radius. This to me is a must have in any classroom. The features that I love are 1.) You can use the Radius as a standard cd player as well 2.) The cards a sturdy and durable and in any event if one of the cards became damaged, you can still us the Radius to locate the card 3.) It comes in this really nice carrying case to prevent damage 4.) The cd sets are made for different grade levels 5.) It's very simple for children to use 6.) In each card set there are teacher notes that explain varies ways of presenting the skill to the students 7.) In each set there is an answer key...so you can follow along with students and assess their answers 8.) It's a great informal testing tool 9.) It's great for small group instruction, independent practice and centers 10.) All the cards in any set you purchase are numbered in order and the key lets you know the answers and what words the students will learn on each card 11.) There are review cards after all of the lessons 12.) You can use up to four headphones or use speakers 13.) The look, listen, write and speak cards have the students to look at the words, listen to how the words are pronounced and sound (phonics), write the words on paper, and my favorite is the speak/record feature. This allows students to record how they sound when pronouncing words 14.) You can buy sets that fit your classroom needs

I was quite surprised when I opened the box, I thought it was going to be a small device, but it is large with easy to see functions...overall, I think that this is one of my best educational purchases I've purchased in awhile. The students love it and it's hands-on which makes it more enjoyable. The Radius and cd card sets are pricey but your money will be well spent!

The concept is good: A visual timer with a yellow warning light/buzzer and a red final timer light. But unless I am totally missing something about its operation, you can't see how much time has elapsed. It is a black box. I set it for 60 mins with a warning at 55 mins and ... then I have no idea if it is working or how much time has elapsed. The only way I can answer my son's "How much time is left?" question is to have a SECOND timer -- a digital one -- that I start at the same time as this one, running side by side. This seems silly. Until this product gets upgraded, my recommendation is to go with a simple digital timer or even a sand 'hourglass' that you can watch and monitor the passage of time

    Not very intuitive unless you know what you're doing. Still a great product, just takes some explaining for people to understand since "minutes" and "warning signal" aren't labeled

      I plan to use this with my students to vary instruction. It can be used 1-on-1, in small groups up to 4 users w/ headphones, or as a whole group activity. I plan to use it mostly for 1-on-1 or small group practice of skills that were taught but are in need of extra practice or extension.

      Please make a time tracker "short"

          Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini:

          The concept is great, but I feel you could make a Time Tracker Short that would better meet the needs of a lot of parents. Please consider making a 25-30 min timer that functions in 1 minute increments. Also please consider changing how the product starts by allowing the timer to be reset simply by pressing the start button after the light goes out. As is I have to turn the power to the unit off and then back on. I tried using this product in my home day care to help the kids know how much time they were taking in the bathroom after eating lunch. Each child needs to go potty, wash hands, brush teeth, and wash their face. Some children were taking a very long time fooling around and playing in the sink. I got this to keep them on task. However the design is not user friendly for kids. You should be able to press a reset button, and then the start button when a new child enters the bathroom for their turn. I love the idea of the colored light and the warning system, it just needs some revamping.

              My work environment includes many meetings. This tool is useful to all attendees seeing time is getting to an end. Visually embeds for better planning for a next meeting and visually encourages returning to desk work versus continuing to converse and use up valuable desk work time. Yes there are many adult meeting strategies. They are used. This visual is best alongside. A great tool and used. I had a concern with a couple reviews that the product was defective however the customer service seems wonderful and I know I can contact customer service for a replacement. I hope you try it!

                  Comments about Learning Resources Time Tracker Mini:

                  I wish you could start the timer just by pressing the Start Button. Instead you have to turn the volume dial to the off position and then turn the volume dial back on and then press the Start button. The timer worked in this manner until 11 months after receipt. The red light comes on when the volume dial is turned on but the start button does not work anymore. Unacceptably short service life.

                      Wow I don't think I ever bought a product that stopped working after the first use. Put in the batteries set the timer to 10 and 5 green light went on then yellow then a horrible screeching sound and POP. Now it does nothing...no sounds no lights... changed batteries let it sit for a day to see if it would reset. Incredibly disappointed and either the company should file suit against the parts manufacturer or they need to hire competent testers. Complete joke of a product.

                          Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                          Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                          Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.

                          Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                          How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                          Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                          Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                          Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                          Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
