Keyboarding- Typing- Speed Typing Activities
This download contains a zip folder that has 6 speed typing activities. These speed typing activities are a great way for students to practice speed/accuracy after they have learned all the letter keys. The topics include bird species, candy bars, dog breeds, fruits, vegetables, and zoo animals. Have the students type a list of any of these topics. They must type a list of everything they can think of related to the topic in a set amount of minutes.
Here is an example of the directions for the bird species:
“Have students type a list of as many birds they can think of in ____ minutes. Tell students to enter after each one. Use Calibri, 12 or 14 font size and get rid of the default 1.15 line spacing. Give one point to each bird the student has and two points to each bird if it is spelled correctly with no typos, etc. Can have students type with their monitors off and a keyboard cover/skin on.”
*NOTE- The speed typing activities in the zip folder are meant as answer keys for the teacher as they contain a full list of items the students may think of. This resource is also great to put in a sub folder/emergency sub folder.
See the preview file for a sample.
