This is a PowerPoint document that has a visual timer so that students can learn to manage their time correctly and understand what is expected of them throughout the day.
The timer on each slide is a green bar that fills up in the amount of time stated on each slide. Students must complete various tasks before the green bar on the slide fills up.
-Each slide has an action, procedures to follow to complete each action, and a timer bar.
(There is no sound, however if students are working to do their best they will be able to finish tasks before time runs out. The teacher or a student can watch and tell the class if they timer beats them or not. I also have a student who is my bell ringer and they are in charge of ringing the bell when time is up.)
This document will help students stream line procedures, finish tasks in a timely manner, and help students to really monitor themselves in regards to doing things efficiently. This document can also give students a better concept of their daily schedule!
