PowerPoint Timer Slides are decks that automatically count down, advancing without clicking. They’re great for teachers who want students to be able to track progress and manage their time. This kind of structure can be helpful to all students, but especially for those students who have emerging executive function skills and struggle to keep their tasks and time aligned.
I’m sharing three decks here. All of them last 15 minutes, but you can make them longer by duplicating the slides and changing the number that is typed on the slide. The transitions are built in and will carry over when the slide is duplicated. This allows teachers to write in what task the students should have completed at that time.
The last deck doesn’t have the text boxes, so this is useful if you just want a timer. Download this deck here.
