    I am looking into making my own teacher items on the computer. For example, I want to type the "I Can" statements on cute clip art and/or background. What do you all use to create the teacher items? I love what I see on blogs and would like to start creating my own items.

    Thanks! Hope everyone has a great school year!

    I highly recommend using PowerPoint. I know it sounds silly but the ability to drop in media along with text and easily manipulate all of it is easier that in any other program out there.

    Great question.

    I was also thinking about how teachers (e.g.) TPT create such nice-looking products (worksheets, etc.) When I do it on Word, it doesn't look "right". But I guess Powerpoint is more suited?

    Problem (for me), I'm no whiz on Powerpoint.

    I have used Word more than anything. The teacher I worked with who created the KinderReaders series used Excel. After I saw how she used Excel, I liked it too. It just depends on what you are most comfortable using. PowerPoint has its advantages as well.
