Students will be engaged during this activity as they will use the activity mat to "type" out high frequency words! Word cards can be differentiated for each group and can change throughout the year without you having to change out a whole new center. SAVES YOU TIME and FUN for the kids ALL YEAR!
Students will enjoy choosing a word card, reading, spelling and then identifying the matching upper and lowercase letters as the point (type) the word out. Students can also use clear chips or magnetic wand and chips to show the letters on the keyboard. In order to reuse the same activity mat per child or pair I suggest to laminate, or put it inside a sheet protector or dry erase pocket so students can write the words with a dry-erase marker.
Students can complete this task dependently or collaborate with a partner to use a timer and race to read-type and write the words.
For additional fun you could choose to put the activity mat inside a sheet protector with bubble wrap underneath!
Great activity for learning high frequency word wall words!
