I have one computer that is pretty much out of commission...no internet, no working disc drive, so what better to use it for than TYPING!! There is no way for students to get distracted by cartoonnetwork.com and I can't use any of my education games on CDs, so typing it is!
I created these typing activities based on our spelling lists.
Step 1 at the station, is to review the flashcards of the spelling words for the week.
Step 2 is typing. The typing worksheet gets clipped to this free-standing board. The typing worksheet has the spelling words underlined to remind students of what words we are working on. I also included the word "enter" at the end of each sentence to remind students to return down one line. At the end of the sheet, it says "print." This is actually step 3. I forgot to take a picture of the printer, but it has a label that says "3. Print"
Step 4 is putting their paper in the finished bin. There is a reminder on the bin to write name and date on the paper. I think when I start this up again, I may add typing their name/date to the top of the typing worksheet instead of hand writing it on their paper.
