Need something to help your reading centers / stations run smoothly? Look no further! With the help of some simple visuals and timers, this PowerPoint is a sure way to make any reading block run smoothly!
Use this PowerPoint for any kind of stations! Although this PowerPoint is set up for reading stations, it is easily editable! You can change / add / delete the station names or number of stations. If you would like a different title at the top of each slide, delete the picture and simply type your own title into the text box!
How the timer works:
Original PPT: You can play the PPT as a slideshow - each slide is set to 1 minute so that the timer counts down. If you need more minutes - copy and paste one of the slides and edit the time to say the number of minute you want (i.e. 11:00, 12:00)
UPDATED PPT: You can now also download the new version that has YouTube video timers inserted! These timers work once the PPT is in "slideshow" mode. If your PPT is updated, the timers will play automatically. Otherwise, you need to press play with your mouse/interactive TV.
NOTE: PPT opens in protected mode for online downloads. For video timers to work "enable content" MUST BE pressed upon opening.
IF "enable content" does not pop up automatically upon opening: GO TO: File-->Info-->Enable Editing
If you would like more/less/different timers - find the youtube video you want and copy the URL. Then, in PowerPoint: Insert --> Video --> Online Video --> Paste Link.
I hope this resource helps your stations run smoothly! Thank you for downloading!
