How to use this teaching resource

  • 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.



Comments & Reviews

  • 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!

  • 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
