If you're like me transition time is a nightmare, because half the kids are going to start talking and the other half are going to be asking "what's next?" about 100 times!
Hopefully this slideshow will help ease the pain of transitions for you and your students. There are 11 slides with 8 different transitions. Leave the slideshow up on the "Home" screen throughout the day and just simply click on the transition. Music will start playing for about 2 minutes, with the last minute being timed. Once the timer runs out a bell with ring, this lets the students know that it is officially work time!
You can even make it a game of students vs. teachers, if all the students are at their desks ready to work, then they earn a point. If not, you get a point. At the end of the day the winner gets a prize!
If you have a reward system like classroom dollars, stickers, etc.. this is a great way to motivate students!
The file format is a PowerPoint, so you are able to change the music, but the images and font are not editable.
