Tricks and Tips: Using Power Point to Make Recording Sheets

I'm popping in with another Power Point trick!  I'm not going to type out a lot... I'll just let the video do the talking :)
Once again, I'm no professional vlogger, but hopefully you'll find it at least a little helpful :)
{In order to type in the top row of the table you MUST select the table and change the font color to black.  Otherwise it will keep a white colored font on the top row.}

On Periscope I did some shout-outs to a few clipart artists, so I wanted to link to those here:

I thank my lucky stars I found your blog! I had no idea how to turn a page vertical and have been cocking my head to one side everytime I create anything! My neck and I thank you for that tip and your easy-to-follow tutorials! I too own a Mac and have a PC at school. Looking forward to more from the BEST blog out there!!!

I started using PowerPoint last year after buying most if your products. Now that I'm making some of my own, these videos really help. Thanks for doing these. I still recommend your products to my teacher friends.

Thank you for posting this as I have wondered how to make a recording sheet with tables for awhile now. I do have one question about making recording sheets. When I am making my games in portrait and need my recording sheet in landscape is there a way to make it all in one powerpoint file. I can't figure out how to do this.

Amy, I am working on this and for some reason, when I merge cells on top row, it wont input letters for NAME. What step am I missing? Thanks,Julie

Thank you so much for sharing! Typically, I have used Word to make documents for the classroom, but now I may have to explore PowerPoint a bit more! This was very helpful! Thanks again :)

This is genius. I use tables, but I was always adding separate text boxes for name, title, and directions. Thanks for showing me how to simplify it and SAVE TIME! :) You're the best!!!!
