  1. Typing
    1. LF Keep hands still – fingers on home keys
  2. Finish j2e5 skills page and save
    1. LF Use more tools in j2e5
      1. Have a go – try something – be resilient
      2. Be accurate
  3. Book covers
    1. Go to “my files”, “shared files”, your class folder
    2. Look at the different book covers
    3. Keep the cover you are doing on the page.
    4. Use the tools in j2e to copy one of them as accurately as possible.

Things to consider:

  • Start with the cover background colour and build it up in layers.  Break the problem down – decomposition
  • Use 3 or 4 search words to find an exact picture match
  • Large background picture – crop then lock in place
  • Search for png images (without white background), eg google “apple png”
  • Copy and paste images from the Google Chrome (or drag onto j2e page)
  • Choose font carefully
  • Use layers (like a paper collage) = piles of paper tools bottom right
  • Keep improving…

Useful tools…?
