This past weekend I spent the majority of my time trying to make our 5th grade video in Movie Maker. Now, it was quite easy when I just put in the photos for my homeroom class, the difficult part (and more so because of my OCDness than anything else) was making sure that every class had a fair amount of pictures, what order they were in, etc. Then we had some music difficulty but once I made Movie Maker compatible with Windows 7 (not the Windows 8 I have... don't ask) it worked! And after all that hard work, I played it this morning in front of EVERYONE at the award ceremony and... it skipped and jumped around and everything else that happens when it works perfectly on your computer but not when it matters most, lol. I think it was just the projector we used because on the computer in our room when we watched it again later it worked just fine. As long as the kids got to see the "pretty version" I'm happy :o)
These are the songs that I used. I started out peppy and then the songs got a little more sad and tugging at the heart strings.
