Recycled Keyboards- Common Core

I am lucky that my mother-in-law works at the Wyandot County Recycling Center. She is collecting keyboards for my classroom! 
10 is a great start so far!


Even though they will not be plugged into computers, we will be using them at workshop time to practice keyboarding skills.
 Common Core-

    Production and Distribution of Writing


Second Grade Common Core = W.2.6. With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.

Third Grade Common Core= W.3.6. With guidance and support from adults, use technology to produce and publish writing (using keyboarding skills) as well as to interact and collaborate with others.

Fourth Grade Common Core= W.4.6. With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of one page in a single sitting.

Fifth Grade Common Core= W.5.6. With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of two pages in a single sitting.

We will practice typing our spelling words.
Anyone else have any great ideas how to use these?
Be the 1st to contact your local recycling center for your own set of keyboards! 
I have dibs for Wyandot County, Ohio!
