Product Description

Learn the keyboard keys while practicing primary words with this color coded typing program. 64 common words are included, as well as a formatted template so you can use your own lists. The typing activity works in PowerPoint or Google Slides. These are perfect for any students grades PreK-3rd or older students who are still working on learning the keyboard. 

The key to this activity is that the letters in the words are formatted to be the same color as the row of keys on the keyboard. This significantly decreases the amount of time students spend searching for letters. I chose red for the top row, green for the middle, and blue for the bottom. This activity doesn't include any numbers but the top row keys are orange in the formatted template. 

I recommend adding a sticker dot to your keyboards with the corresponding colors, but the colored keyboard graphic is also included at the top of each slide in this activity. 

What is included

• 1 Google Slides file that can either be shared via Google Classroom or downloaded as PowerPoint files. 

• 1 PDF with directions for making your Google Slides file copy and sharing with your students. Also now includes a blank printable keyboard that students can color as well as different keyboard layout posters.

• A formatted Excel spreadsheet (can be uploaded and converted to Google Sheets) so that you can make your own words and/or change the formatted letter colors (directions for changing colors not included)

How it all works

With this resource you will receive a link to a file to be shared with your students in Google Classroom or download as a PowerPoint file. 

Students will open the file and type the prompt words. I recommend doing one file per week until they have done all 8. You can have them do it as practice or you can use it as an assessment (not self-checking so you'll have to open each one to grade it). 

This is a great way to improve technology literacy and typing efficiency for students.
