Camp-Related Activities We Do Each Day at Typing Camp

By Beth Newingham on May 25, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

At Typing Camp, our afternoons are three hours long, and students can become restless spending the entire time typing. Their fingers and their brains need a break!!

During break times, we eat snacks, do some campfire read-alouds, and sing our Typing Camp chant around the campfire. The Typing Camp chant is a little song I wrote that is fun to sing and helps students review the phrases of the keys on the keyboard. (I used Super Duper Music Looper to create the music track for the song.

You can download the Typing Camp chant lyrics in Microsoft Word, as well as audio files of an instrumental version of the chant and the chant with leader vocals.
