Use these keyboard templates to help your students learn where the letters are on a keyboard and become faster typers.
There are 2 versions -
1 - This one has yellow spots to show students where to place their hands and a little box telling them to remember to have their fingers in home position ready to start
2 - This one is the beginners version and has no yellow spots.

(as my students are only just beginnng to type we only used the simple boards
Using these boards has really helped my students who have never typed on a keybaord before become more confident. The challenge of coverting their knowledge of lowecase to uppercase letters is tricky for some and this has allowed them to practise finding the uppercase letters a lot quicker. Soon we can move onto short phrases and focus on how to use capitals, spaces and full stops!
