Prep for Typing Camp: Make T-Shirts
- Grades: 3–5
Camping is a wonderful way to build community among your students, and is one reason why I decided to create Typing Camp.
To help them feel like they are really at camp with their classmates is to have them wear matching camp T-shirts. In the past, I have created designs in Print Shop and then printed them on iron-on transfer paper that I purchased at an office supply store. (There is a feature in Print Shop that allows users to print any page as an iron-on transfer so that it prints out as a mirror image.) Each student brings a white T-shirt to school, and parents volunteer to iron the graphic onto each student's T-shirt.
In recent years we have actually had a local T-shirt company design a keyboarding T-shirt for us, and students have been asked to pay five dollars for their T-shirt. Of course this is a more expensive option that may be less desirable in this economy.
