What We Do at Typing Camp: Day 5 and Beyond

By Beth Newingham on May 24, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

After spending the first part of camp  in the computer lab typing, we end our camp experience by adding pictures to our camp memory books. Each page in the students' memory books has a typed caption that reminds them of something they did at camp.

After taking pictures of students throughout the week, I print out the pictures and pass them out to each student. They glue the photos on the correct pages. Students also collect signatures from their classmates on the signature page in their memory books.

These books are then taken home so that parents can see what their child did at camp, and the students have a camp souvenir that they can keep forever.

We do not want students to forget all that they learned at Typing Camp. For this reason, we continue to revisit the computer lab for shorter periods of time throughout the rest of the school year so that students' typing skills remain sharp.
