Ideas for Use

Keyboard Spelling Activity - Suggestions for Use...


  • Place a word card on the top section, or write in a spelling word using whiteboard marker...... 

    **children practise 'typing' the work on their keyboard. 

    **children colour in or cross or circle the matching letters on the keyboard using whiteboard markers. 

    **children draw a continuous line from first letter to last letter on their keyboard using whiteboard markers. 

    **children write their name on top and practice 'typing' their name

  • Keep the top section blank...... 

    **children practice 'typing' the alphabet on their keyboard. 

    **in pairs, one child 'types' a word from a list - their partner watches carefully and has to 'guess' which word they are typing. 

    **again in pairs, one child colours in, crosses, or circles letters using a known word - partner has to unjumble the marked letters to match the word.

  • Explore and discuss the way letters are positioned on the keyboard - children investigate actual keyboards and label the blank keyboard sheets.

  • Colour the vowels one colour and the consonants a different colour on their keyboards.

Hi Jemma

If you click on the link and work your way through the pages - we do have them available in all sorts of different ways including black and white...

Cheers Jemma

Would it be possible to have a keyboard that is totally black and white? Then the children could colour in the letters they press to log in/write their name/passwords etc. I'm a Year 1 Teacher and half our weekly lab lesson is consumed by finding the computer keys!

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
