Typing is a very important skill for our students to be able to do. Our students need lots of practice to learn how to type quickly. This activity will give your students to opportunity to practice typing while writing about a topic they know a lot about.
Choose a writing prompt card. Then, students write on that topic using the computer in order to write one full page. Once finished typing, students share their writing with a classmate.
