This file includes two Notebook software slides that help students visualize their growth in reading stamina. Each scale starts at 4 minutes and is labeled every two minutes thereafter with a goal of 20 minutes. The first slide is an interactive time-o-meter, which the teacher can adjust the "mercury" according to the number of minutes students have grown in their reading stamina. The second slide is not interactive but has a more "true" scale on the thermometer. Using the second slide, teachers will have to create a red rectangle to show the amount of stamina students have obtained.
If you would like the minutes scale to be different, please ask and I can adjust for your grade level.
