OK...this is the best tool on the smartboard. OK maybe not the BEST but it is really, really cool. This timer is in the gallery section of the smartboard software and you can modify it to cheer, clap, have drums play or beep when the clock gets to zero! I used it today to help the children move to different math stations and it worked beautifully. I leave this as a smartboard file on my computer desktop so that it is always available to me. Try it!
