Read 180 Back to School Powerpoint Classroom Timer. Independent Reading, Computer Station, Small Group, Whole Group.
I love teaching Read 180 but I'm not crazy about the little timer they give you. (I keep losing it and the kids keep getting their hands on it!) So I created a 90 Minute Powerpoint Timer. It includes three 20 minute Rotations(60), in addition to Whole Group (20) and Wrap-Up(10).
You can customize the times by adding or deleting slides. You can add music cues to the opening and closing. I've included standard Powerpoint chimes for transitions, and I highly recommend adding a ticking clock (free from iTunes) for the 1 minute warning slides. Also, you can add music for the beginning and end of classes (I like using the "Third Man" theme by Anton Karas, inexpensive at iTunes as well. Not complicated to do!
