Presentation provides a way that you can add notes to your presentation. These notes are intended for your own use, as the presenter, rather than to be seen by your audience. Some people, though, print the notes to create a "handout" for their audience. This is fine, too—how you use the notes area is entirely up to you.
Notes are created on a slide-by-slide basis. The notes don't show in the presentation itself (as the audience is viewing the presentation), but they do appear on the computer so that you can refer to them as you are speaking.
To add notes to a slide, look for the area at the bottom of the screen, below the slide itself, where there is text that says "Click to Add Notes." As directed by the descriptive text, click in that area and you can start typing away without affecting what is shown in the slide itself.
