This webpage was originally created by the 2009-2010 Newman University ESL Class taught by Amy Waggoner.
These websites have lots of special-effect features! Turn your photos into cartoon art projects, pop art, and have fun with many other special-effect features!
Take scrapbooking to the next level by creating actual books with these websites! Create books about trips and vacations, biographies of family members, graduation gifts, and more! (This is one of Amy Waggoner's favorites!)
To encourage and celebrate the creative talents and skills
of students, Landmark House, Ltd. is pleased to announce The 2009 National
Kids-in-Print Book Contest for Students.
Landmark House, Ltd. will then publish the three winning
students' books, one from each of the three age categories. The books
will be printed and assembled according to the finest quality standards
of book publishing.
What wonderful experiences await the three winners! When
their books are selected for publication, they will be offered publishing
contracts. They also will enjoy all-expense-paid trips to our offices
in Kansas City, Kansas, where Landmark's professional staff will assist
them in the editing, refining, and final production of their books. Within
months, the winners will become published authors and illustrators and
will be paid royalties annually on the sales of their books.
Barry Lane has a great sense of humor and really knows how to motivate kids to write by tapping into to fun side of language and words. Contests and fun writing activities can be found here!
Visit the website to see how this tech tool can be used personally, professionally, or in the classroom. Students can show an image (such as a cover of their favorite book), a photo, or a piece of their artwork and record their voice as they tell about it and share with others face-to-face or online.
