Keyboard Music 2 Free - Practice Spelling Words/Common Core Keyboarding

Keyboard Music 2 Free App

Chose this app for our iPods tonight!
What a fun way to practice spelling words & keyboarding skills during workshop time! 
WARNING:
This app only shows one letter at a time so a student could easily spell the word incorrectly and not even know it. 
Option1: 
Have student type one letter on the keyboard and then write that letter on a post-it note. Continue to repeat (type then write) until the word is spelled correctly. After student is finished, type the word over and over quickly several times- hearing the pattern!
Option 2:
Students work in pairs. One student types a letter while the other student records the letter on a dry erase board. Repeat. After student is finished, type the word over and over quickly several times- hearing the pattern! Switch! 
I will let you know how it goes! 
Let me know if you try it! 

Here is a great resource for Common Core keyboarding activities!
