How to cut and paste pieces from a PDF document to make it interactive for teletherapy sessions using the Snipping Tool on a PC
STEP 1: Open up a new blank document in Powerpoint. Keep in mind you can change the layout from landscape to portrait if necessary.
STEP 2: Open up the PDF document that you want to make interactive. This example was bought and downloaded from Teachers Pay Teachers and opens up in Adobe Acrobat Reader
STEP 3: On the bottom left corner of your PC laptop, click the magnifying glass and search the computer for “Snipping Tool”
STEP 4: The Snipping Tool box will pop up in the upper right hand corner. Click “New”. From here, left click and hold while you drag your mouse over the area or picture that you want to snip.
STEP 5: Once you have completed this, a new window will automatically pop up with the portion of the PDF that you snipped
STEP 6: After this new window pops up, you can copy and paste the picture into your new blank document in Powerpoint. To cut and paste, right click and select “Copy”, to paste right click and select “Paste”. You can also select “Ctrl + C” for copy and “Ctrl + V” for paste. The Control (Ctrl) button is located on the bottom left portion of your keyboard.
STEP 7: Go back and repeat Step number 4, 5 and 6 for any other areas of the PDF document that you wish to snip. I continued to snip the three sequencing pictures.
STEP 8: Once you have pasted all of the pictures into Powerpoint, it is now interactive and each piece can be moved around and manipulated.
STEP 9: During a teletherapy session, you can now share your screen and have the student tell you which picture goes first, next and last while you move the pictures or if you can give the student mouse control they can put the pictures in the correct order themselves.
STEP 10: You can continue these steps and create an entire interactive document and then save it to your computer to easily open up during teletherapy sessions.
