PowerPoint Timer - a classroom management PowerPoint. Set for any time up to 1 hour. Keep students on task with this countdown clock. The PowerPoint slides count down from 60 minutes all the way to "None." Set it for any time up to 60 minutes simply by selecting the slide on which you want to start and starting slide show. It has a 3 minute warning and a 2 minute warning (with a sound effects) to give students advance notice that time will be up soon. Last slide has an applause sound, a dancing pencil, and asks students to stop and listen.
This classroom management timer PowerPoint can be used for timing students for many different activities including cooperative learning time, group work, independent work, timed tests, center rotation, etc. A great visual aid for teaching students how to pace themselves for state tests. Just project it up on the Smartboard for all students to see. It doesn't have to be set always at 60 minutes: it can be set at any interval between 1 and 60 minutes and transitions slides each minute. Good classroom management technique to keep students on task.
