SPELLING/LEARNING CENTERS
Magic Keyboards for Spelling

Obtain a keyboarding book used for keyboarding skills. In there, you will most likely find a copy of the layout of a keyboard, with all the letters of the alphabet on it. Make a photocopy of one for each student in your classroom and mount onto tag board. Laminate to help keep them nice for future use. When it's time for spelling practice, pass out the keyboard and have your students "type" away their spelling words! Have them posted on the board for all to see and challenge them to type each word 3 times. Walk around as they are "typing" to be sure that they are all taking this seriously. This really is a great spelling activity as it gets your students thinking letter by letter and concentrating on what follows. Tell them, "Don't forget those spaces!" :-)

You could also place these in a learning center for extra practice time!
