Step ONE:

Upload your photos to Photo Story 3.  You can use real photos or find clipart or illustrations on the internet for your project.  You must include at least 13 photos in your project.
Save your project!

Step TWO:

Copy and paste the corrected sentences from your word document to the corresponding picture in your Photo Story.
Save your project!

Step THREE:

Record your narration.  Remember, pronunciation is important!  You can preview and re-record your narration as many times as you need to!
To record, choose the image you will be recording on.  Click the "record sound" button.  Read the text on the page.  Click the "stop" button.

Save your project!

Step FOUR:

Use PowerPoint to create a "Cover Page" for your story.  Include the title of your story, your name, and a picture.  This may be one of the pictures you used in your project.  Click "Save as" to save the Power Point as a .jpg (picture).  Upload it to your project.
Save your project!

Step FIVE (Optional):

Customize your effects and add music.  You can use your favorite song as long as it is school appropriate!  You can also download music from freeplaymusic.com or Soundz Abounds (found on the Marshall LMC page).  If you include music, please lower the volume of your music track so that it does not interfere with your narration.
You are not required to add music or effects to your project.

Step SIX:

Save your project, then click "save your story for playback on your computer".  This will save your project as a .wmv (Windows Movie File).

FINAL STEP:

Share your project with Madame Shea.  You can email your video as an attachment, or you can share it as a Google Doc.  You can even upload it to YouTube and share the URL. 
Voilà!  Tu as fini!  Bravo!

We will be watching these videos next week during class.  You are welcome to bring snacks to share during the videos!  :)
