    Bundle Description

    Students practice spelling and typing words with story mats and printable keyboards (or you can use real keyboards). There are 4 levels of each story and 28 different keyboard layout options to make differentiation a breeze. Prep them once and use it as a station all year long.

    This series was created in collaboration with Mrs. D's Corner as a way of teaching the skill of keyboarding to all levels of learners in an engaging and developmentally appropriate way. Please check out the preview to get the full picture of this resource.

    USING THE STORIES

    Regardless of how you decided to bind the pages together, these activities are meant to be easy to use and independent for most students.

    Students simply

    • read the words,
    • type the indicated word on their printed keyboard, and then
    • flip to the next page and continue.

    You could have them read the words out loud and spell out the typed word as they find the letters. You could have them do the activity silently. We’ve found that it makes a great independent word work station.

    There is a nearly limitless combination of keyboard layouts and story levels included in this resource that you can use to differentiate for your students.

    For example, use a level 1 story (Uppercase with box) with the matching simplest keyboard (color coded) until mastery and then change out the keyboard for one with more keys or different color coding to add a challenge.

    OR Use the same keyboard layout the whole time but with increasingly harder versions of the story each time.

    PREPPING THE STORIES

    Once you’ve decided on the level of challenge you want for your students, print the Keyboard(s).

    If you print the black and white keyboards, you can put them on colored paper to save ink while still making the page look appealing.

    Cardstock is recommended since the keyboards are going to be touched the most. Laminate them if you can.

    The story pages print two to a page. All you have to do is cut across the line and the halves are the same size. No trimming!

    BINDING AND STORING THE PREPPED STORIES

    You have a lot of binding options. Putting the stories in a binder is a great option if you know you’ll be putting them away and taking them back out regularly (or asking your students to just grab and go). All you have to do is 3-hole punch on the gray bar.

    If you have a binding machine, spiral bound stories are also easy to store and look so cute!

    Stapling the tops will also work, just take the time to fold back the pages or show students how to if they are using a freshly made story.

    We would love to see pictures of how you put together your Typing Story Mats. Don't forget to tag us on social media!
