Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.

Voltaire (1694-1778)

A refreshing alternative to using a timer for an activity is to use a specific piece of background music. Depending upon the activity music can encourage participation. It also gives feedback to the participants about remaining time in a way that the dead silence of a timer does not.

Dance into English was used at a Japanese kindergarten that had an all-day English program. Every day one class would do all their activities in English. At lunch time both English and Japanese were used. The music served as a transition back into "English Time", hence its name.
