TIP: The presence of the bunny icon indicates that the alarm is enabled to sound at the appointed time: “Toe” Button Operations (While The Alarm Is Sounding) LEFT: Pressing the left toe button causes Teach Me Time! to snooze for 10 minutes. After ten minutes the alarm sounds again. RIGHT: Pressing the right toe button will silence a sounding alarm or cancel a snooze that is in progress. Page 10 TIP: When Teach Me Time! is snoozing the sheep icon animates in the display: Using the Night-Light Timer The Teach Me Time! night-light timer can be programmed to turn on yellow in the evening, change to green in the morning (the “OK to Wake!” time) and then turn off automatically at whatever times desired. This cycle then repeats indefinitely when in timer mode (see below). Night-Light Modes Tap the LIGHT button to toggle between the night-light modes as follows: • • • • Off On - Yellow On - Green Timer Mode ( icon appears in display) When the night-light is set to timer mode, the yellow and green lights operate according to a schedule set by the parent. See Setting the Night-Light Timer below. TIP: The dual-color night-light feature is useful for very young children who cannot yet tell time. Parents may choose to instruct their son or daughter not to get up “until Teach Me Time! turns green.” TIP: Teach Me Time!’s lights only operate under AC power so ensure that the included power adapter is plugged into a working outlet. Setting the Night-Light Timer To set the night-light timer follow these steps: 1. Press and hold the LIGHT key for two (2) seconds to enter night-light timer setup. The yellow night-light ON time (8:00pm by default) appears and may be adjusted using the HR +/- and MIN +/- keys. 2. Next, tap the LIGHT key once quickly to move to the next step. The night-light OFF time (9:00am by default) appears and may be adjusted in the same manner. (continued on the next page …) Page 11 TIP: The diagram below depicts the chronological order that the colored lamps turn on and the order in which they are programmed during timer setup. Using the Night-Light Timer (continued) 3. Tap the LIGHT key once quickly to move to the third and final step. The night-light CHANGE time (6:00am by default) appears. The change or “OK to Wake!” time is the time at which the night-light color changes from yellow to green. This time may also be adjusted. 4. Tap the LIGHT key once more to exit the night-light timer setup sequence. Upon exiting, Teach Me Time! automatically places the night-light in timer mode ( icon appears). Disabling Color Changing Of The Night-Light Timer You may prefer to have the night-light turn on and off automatically but not change color. In order to disable the colorchange transition do one of the following: 1. Set the CHANGE time equal to the ON time. In this case the night-light turns on (yellow) at the ON time and off at the OFF time. It does not change color. 2. Set the CHANGE time equal to the OFF time. In this case the night-light turns on (green) at the ON time and off at the OFF time. It does not change color. In either case, if the CHANGE time is disabled, a small “x” appears in the center of the light bulb icon during timer setup (this “x” is not seen during ordinary operation): Page 12 TIP: The CHANGE (to green) time may not be adjusted beyond the night-light ON (yellow) time and the night-light OFF extremes. Teach Me Time! automatically enforces this and it is the reason that the ON and OFF times are set first and the CHANGE time is set last. Playing the Teach Me Time! Game The Teach Me Time! built-in teaching game is designed to be played together with your child and to encourage a pattern of learning about time before bed.
