Keep That Typewriter in the Classroom
I'm sure if you looked around, you'd find an old electric or manual typewriter around. Put it in the classroom, along with some scratch paper. Here are some skills they can practice that a computer can't give them (especially if you don't have a printer.) And the best part? They can keep the paper!
Benefits: learning the keyboard, alphabet practice, spelling, sentence structure and punctuation, fine motor skills, and much more!
* Their names, the names of their family members
* Their address and phone number
* A simple sentence (either copied or of their own creation) GT students can try for a whole paragraph.
* spelling words, seasonal words, their reading words
How many more can you come up with?
