I'm Getting a Smartboard!!!!!!!!

I am so excited! I am getting a smartboard for my classroom finally!!! I have used an infocus projector for several years, but it's not interactive. I put my calendar in ppt several years and have done calendar time with it since then. I have a small calendar board that I use for things that needed to be posted all the time. But, long story short I found out I could take all my powerpoints and convert them into a Notebook file! I will be putting up calendars starting with August in powerpoint as I update them. If you want the Notebook version, just email me ( or leave a comment and I'll send it to you. The songs Rules Rap, Days of the Week, and Macarena Months are by Dr. Jean. The font I used is Impress BT (click on the font to go to the download page).
Just click on the graphic to download the calendar.

The Rules Rap song is also a powerpoint and can be linked  to the August calendar powerpoint.

How do you convert ppt into notebook? I didn't know you could do that! :-)

It's really simple
1. Open up Smart Notebook.
2. Click on file
3. Select Import and make sure it's set for all Powerpoint files.
4. Browse for your file ans select it.
5. It opens up all the interactive graphics intact. Whatever it would do in Powerpoint it will do in Smart Notebook.

Yay for you! I have a few smartboard resources on my page and I like to create new ones every now and then. Come on over and take a look.

I had a SMARTboard linky party a while back. Hop on over and check out all the resources or better yet link up! I'm leaving it open all summer for everyone to keep linking!
Just scroll down and look under SMARTboard on my sidebar to find the linky!
