Thank you for the word of encouragement.


Also for those of you wondering what 'original work' meant regarding the clip art imgaes. You can use any clip art images that you like. They do not have to be original only the created work content itself. I am also if anyone wants my clipart going to upload the clip art images into the LM downloads of icons to use, so if you are interested you can find them there. That is if I can get them all on there without causing a problem. If not then I will upload some here in the thread.

Thanks for the great questions and replies.

Since some do not have LM I will post the clipart some on here and email to those who request them.

You know I didn't think about the insects.....as long as it has to do with the farm type them, like a fly on a pig or on a horse or a fly eating corn or a tobacco worm. Even the crows on the corn and scarecrow would be a good one to. As long as it has to do with the farm or farming. Good question.....

I uploaded a pdf for SET 1 of clipart you are welcome to use. Theme Unit CONTEST set 1. It is located in the DOWNLOADS (activities for English) and now there is Theme Unit CONTEST set 2 downloaded for you to use. All you have to do is download the pdf files, open them, then right mouse click on the picture you want, then choose copy, then right mouse click to paste the picture to where ever you want. Remember this clipart is for non-commercial use, and do not sale the clipart please. The clipart game from http://www.digiwebstudio.com/store/     and http://digiscrapkits.com/digiscraps/

I would love to participate. I have some ideas but I don't know how to prepare them. Is there any tutorial available somewhere?

I would like to get answer to questions like: How to create templates for a theme? How to paste real pictures and some words into the template?

I have a lot of ideas for subject but my technical side is not so good.

Please help!

I use power point for my creations. If you don't have power point then you can use the free version of openoffice. You can download it for free at www.openoffice.org
To place a picture into your template then right mouse click on the photo click copy then right mouse click onto your template and click paste or you can use in the power point program the insert tab.

Another suggestions is if you own a printer to print your pictures off and then just draw your template instead of using a computer. This is how I ust to do everything before I had a computer. You can type the words or sentences and then paste them into the template once the template is completed then just scan it if you have a scanner or take a picture of it to post on BK.

You might can search youtube to find a tutorial on how to use power point. I can probably do one tonight when the kids are asleep for you if you have power point on your computer? You can do it in word but it takes a while. Do you have openoffice? Let me know which one so I can make a quick tutorial.

mother of faith,
Thank you for your replay. I have power point.

How you create templates in power points though? If I understand correctly what template means ;-)
