How exciting! Use whatever graphic program you have to show all those
confusing concepts that are hard to show without lots of handmade examples
or drawing on the board. Examples:
Dragging an object larger allows you to show very quickly how much more
effective it is to draw large instead of small in the space allowed; use
copy and paste or duplicate commands to create instant patterns, use fill
commands to discuss contrast, and so on...
