Timing the one minute readings

There are 2 timed readings. Each of these readings should be timed for one minute. 

A mechanical timer can be purchased to time the stories.  There is also an excellent freeware timer called Minute Timer that can be downloaded and installed on a computer to time the stories.  The timer is available at this website.

This is a screen shot from the Minute Timer version 1.1.  Note on their web page that Version 1.2 is available.  Version 1.1 works better for this project.

To use the timer, type the number 1 in the box and click on Start.  Click on the Minimize box, or just click anywhere in the Reading Skills story page to hide the timer window.

At the end of 1 minute, a pop-up window will appear with a message that the time has expired (see screen shot below).  An audio sound will also play when the pop-up appears.
