At the beginning of the year, students aren’t ready to read for long stretches of time. Teachers have to help them build their ability to read independently little by little.

Nadine Gilkison, Digital Resource Designer for Smekens Education, created PowerPoint slideshows to help students develop just that—reading stamina! Engaging images display minutes of work while students strive to stretch out their independent reading time. As the slides mark the time, students (and teachers) can see at a glance how far they’ve grown in their stamina.

Use the PowerPoint to celebrate your students’ success as they build up their minutes one by one.
