Alarm Clock App

Last year we did away with bells for most of the day and the same thing is happening this year. Last year I created iCal calendars to remind people of when class was ending and it was time to do points but it wasn't as effective as the suggestion by Valerie Russell. She recommended a little piece of software called Alarm Clock 2 that allows you to set multiple alarms for multiple days and even choose whatever song you want to play.

Imagine the scenario where five minutes before the period is supposed to end an alarm goes off and Elvis' "A Little Less Conversation, A Little More Action" starts playing to remind your kids that it's time to wrap things up and get ready for points. Well that reality can all be yours.

Here's the app itself (apparently it's not longer being supported anymore). Unzip it and drag it to your Applications folder
