How it Works:
Print out as many wipe off work mats and card sets as you need and laminate them.
 
Students will draw a card from their pile. Using a dry-erase marker, first they will pop the word on their keyboard. Then they will color in the letters they used on the keyboard. Finally, they will write the word in the box. They wipe their mat clean and then choose a new card.
 
This activity can be differentiated for students with a variety of card sets to choose from.

  3. 6 sets of task cards (numbers, number recognition with dice, letters, CVC words, sight words, and keyboard shortcuts)

Materials needed:
  • Cardstock recommend for durability

Ideas for Use:

  • This would make a great activity to introduce the keyboard layout to kindergarten and first grade students.
  • Print all 6 task cards sets and use them as stations around the classroom. Students can do it as many times as you have time for.
  • Keep them available in your room for early finishers or days when you don’t have access to devices.
