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!
