Prep for Typing Camp: Determine a Time and Place
- Grades: 3–5
You may or may not have a computer lab at your school where all students can type at one time. We are lucky to have an isolated lab with 30 computers. Since third graders use the computer lab in the afternoons for a solid week, we have to make sure we set our dates for Typing Camp at the beginning of the year. This allows other teachers to make arrangements to use the laptops instead of the lab during the times we are at camp. Even though we travel to the computer lab to type, we return to our classroom to enjoy breaks at our campground.
There is not enough room to set up camp in the computer lab. If you are like many teachers and just have some computers in your classroom, your camping experience may look different. Some students may be typing while other students are doing camp-related activities.
