A Keyboard

A Keyboard
When B was younger he always wanted to type on my keyboard so I bought him this one from Goodwill for $3. It has been great to use for “his office” and other pretend play!
keyboard and your toddler
Here are some other uses for this inexpensive keyboard:
  • Identifying letters and numbers – “Can you find and push the letter B?”
  • Letter Sounds – “Can you push the button with the letter that says /s/?”
  • Spelling your Name – Put letter stickers on the letters of your child’s name to practice typing their name
  • Use the arrow keys to talk about up, down, left, and right
  • If you’re brave, let your child use your keyboard to see how the letters that they type show up on the screen (using Word).

Very creative idea. My boy absolutely loved to play with our old keyboard when he was a baby. Come to think of it, he learned his letters very early. Maybe that is why! LOL
