Word processing activities
Basic WP skills revised in 12 straightforward fun exercises - what you font is what you get!
A popular lesson pack selected from the Complete Books Vols 1 & 2.
These activities are tried and true.
Pupils use "There was an old woman who swallowed a fly..." with its repetition to learn copy and paste.
They learn the use of a cursor and deletion and insertion skills to change word definitions.
They use a clever misspelled poem to learn spell checking and its limitations.
They play with fonts and sizes to create posters.
Start the lesson off by showing students this zany and fun video version of the song from the British Council:
"There was an old woman who swallowed a fly..."
and as an extension using copy and paste again, follow-up with:
"She'll be coming round the mountain"
(both have had over a million views after all!)
