Smartboard Literacy Files - Notebook 10 Format

The activities below are only available in Smartboard Notebook format. They were created with Version 10 of the Notebook software and may not work on other versions. Also, they only seem to work on PCs. I hope they work for you, but at this point in time, I'm not able to offer support for this activities. I apologize for not being able to help if they don't, but I'm still a Smartboard newbie myself!
