Turtle Typing – Level 1
Turtle Typing – Level One is a typing primer for the SMART Board created for children aged 4-6. In this activity, students are presented with a series of letters that spell out a Pre-primer or Primer word from the Dolch Word List (see Teacher Notes for complete list of the 16 words used in the activity). When the letter appears, students touch on the corresponding letter on the keyboard. If they are correct, the activity displays the next letter. When the word is displayed, students type out the word for reinforcement.
