2 Creating PowerPoint Books There is no video for this step. ScanScan all the images of the book using a flatbedscanner or a printer scanner.It is better to use a scanner rather than a camera.The camera introduces too much noise andshadows. Scanned images are cleaner and moreprofessional looking.There is no video for this step.
3 Creating PowerPoint Books There is no video for this step. PlanPlan how you want the pages to look on yourPowerPoint.Most children's books carry the image across two pages.So the natural flow would be to either place two pagesside by side on one slide or stitch them together firstusing Paint.net.Plan how you want the textDo you want to type it in and animate it? (Easiest)Or do you want to use highlighted boxes over theexisting text?There is no video for this step.
4 Creating PowerPoint Books Refer to Audacity tutorial Step 3RecordUsing Audacity, record a narration of the bookSave sound clips using the planned layoutgenerally each line of text is one clipany words with extra long pauses should besaved as a separate clip as it is easier to time theanimation.Refer to Audacity tutorial
5 Creating PowerPoint Books Refer to Paint.net tutorial Step 4Prepare ImagesUsing Paint.net prepare images according to yourplanned layout.If you plan to animate objects within the imagesbe sure to remove the object from thebackground and save a separate image of theobject to add back into powerpoint.Refer to Paint.net tutorial

Step 5Insert ImagesCreate a blank PowerPoint presentation with enoughslides to paste the images.If you want a colored background apply it to all theslides after you create them.If the images will completely cover the slide, it isnot necessary to use a background.Insert each image onto each slide according to your plan.Click on the picture to play the video.

Step 6Prepare TextTyped text:Create a separate text box for each sentence orline of text.Try to place the text as close to the book format aspossible.Remember that text should be large enough forthe student to read without problems.Highlighted text:Insert a rectangle shape onto the page.Format the rectangle to desired color andtransparency.Stretch the shape to fit the individual word.Copy and paste as many shapes as needed.Typed TextHighlighted Text

10 Creating PowerPoint Books Step 8Animate ObjectsYou can animate each object separately.Click on “Add Effect” to choose different effects.There are so many different ways to animate objects.Play around with different effects, timing, delays, etc.to get the animation desired.See” Animating Objects” and “Creating Multiple Effects” options in thePowerPoint Help Menu for tutorial.
11 Creating PowerPoint Books There is no video for this step. Transition pagesTo make your PowerPoint book play automatically you will need to settransitions for each page.You can set a transition to apply to all pages (easiest).However, this will create some pages that seem to “wait forever” to turn andsome pages that appear to “turn quickly” or “cut off”.This is due to the timing being the same for each page.You can set individual or “customized” transitions for each page (takes moretime, but is a more smooth running book).See “Transitions” option in the PowerPoint Help Menu for more details.
12 Creating PowerPoint Books There is no video for this step. SaveOnce you are happy with your presentation it is time to save it.It is important to save your PowerPoint presentation as a “Show” if it is forstudent viewing or showing.This way when you click on it – It always opens up as a show and willautomatically run through.If you are saving the Presentation to share, then you should save as apresentation – leaving it available for editing.You can also save it using the “Package for CD” option in the “File” drop-downmenu. This is useful to share across platforms and other computers. It willcreate any linked files to travel with the presentation.See “Saving” option in the PowerPoint Help Menu for more details.
13 Creating Your Own Books Creating your own books can be very liberating.You can simply plan the book around the lesson creating a verysimple story line using the lesson vocabulary words and sentence structure.Create the sound using your own voice and audacity.Create the images with Paint.netOr you can just download clip-art from the internet.Then use the same animation and timing techniques for thePowerPoint books.I have included some examples on the training CD for you to view and use
