So recently I have been using a lot of the pre-made lessons from the Harcourt website. I used it sparingly last year and found it does make life simpler. Now I am using the whole group powerpoints as a jumping off place for my lessons. My issue though is I would prefer to use the Smart Board. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to easily convert the PowerPoint presentations into Smart Notebook. Or there might even be some other websites, lessons etc that some of you use. I would appreciate any advice. THANKS!!

Hi! Powerpoint projects CAN be turned into Smartboard lessons! Open a new Smart Notebook document and under File, click Import... Then, choose your PPoint project!
I agree with you- the Harcourt website has some helpful resources that are perfect for large group or centers. Good luck!

If you have any files to share, feel free to e-mail them to Dr. Elder at selder@pcboe.net.

One note, is you may want to separate the notebook files based on days. If the file(s) are too large, they won't e-mail. Also, send me anything you'd like to share. We can add it to our Global Learner Site and Atomic Learning account.
