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.
 
What is included in this POP It Keyboard Activities PDF:
  1. Activity printable work mat
  2. Task box labels (optional)
  3. 6 sets of task cards (numbers, number recognition with dice, letters, CVC words, sight words, and keyboard shortcuts)
  4. Picture instructions to guide assembly and storage, but the end result can be very flexible to meet your needs.
Materials needed:
  • Cardstock recommend for durability
  • Laminator or ability to laminate
  • Dry or wet erase marker and eraser
  • Storage
Ideas for Use:
  • Word work station for students learning to match letters. Ideal for a classroom that has technology and students will eventually be expected to find the letters on a keyboard.
  • 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.
