Every summer I work on something that has really bugged me during the year. This year, once and for all, I am going to do something about the random beeping coming from my Beat the Clock books. See my post on Beat the clock books here: http://luvtoeduc8.blogspot.com/2011/04/beat-clock.html
I'm teaching a lesson and all of a sudden I hear "beep...beeeeeep....beeeeep! It drives me insane; I can't ignore it, and I have to go and adjust the books so they don't beep. When I got the books they came with a plastic cover over the timer. Foolish me thought they were packaging material and threw them all away. They were extremely important because the books have to lay against each other on the bookshelf, and the cover keeps them from setting off the timer! BUT...I think I have a solution. Last night I purchased two of these wire racks that have 11 sections in which to put the Beat the Clock books in. Cross that one of my list of things to do!
