Here is an EXAMPLE I created to help you if you get stuck. Please don't steal my questions. :)

Step 1 - Create a Smore Account

Create a smore.com account. Please do not link it to your facebook. Make it something easy to remember.

Step 2 - Begin Your Flier

Create a title and include your name in the subtitle section.


Create a new text box in Smore

  • Open a new browser window and search, "How to Train a Dog" from Animal Planet
  • Copy and paste the first page of the article into your smore
  • Insert the following reference into your smore below your article:

Fortney, William. "How to Train a Dog." Animal Planet. Discovery Communications, Web. 29 May 2013. <http://animal.discovery.com/pets/how-to-train-a-dog.htm>.

Step 3 - Annotate

  • On your own notebook paper, create two column notes for the first page of the article
  • Be sure to show questions (?), important details (check mark), and interesting details (!) and include notes

Step 4 - Write Questions

Create a new text box in Smore (title this box "Questions") and write six questions:


  • two understanding questions
  • two interpretation questions
  • two evaluation questions

Step 5 - Answer Questions

Create a new text box in Smore (title this box "Answers") and answer the questions you posed in Step 4.

Step 6 - Insert a Pic of You Annotations

  • Take a picture of your annotations with your iPad.
  • Create a new text box in Smore (title this box "Annotations")
  • Tap the arrow at the edge of the box to show the picture area.
  • Tap on the picture and insert the photo you just took.
  • Be sure to create title for the section

Step 7 - Done Editing and Turn In

  • On the upper right hand there is a box that says "Done Editing". Tap on this box.
  • It will then "publish" your Smore.
  • On the right side navigation, there is a "Link" box.
  • Tap the button next to the link to copy it.
  • Use the link below to submit your name and your link. Once this is done, you can continue working on and updating your Smore.
