Activity plan

  1. At the start of the week, explain to your students that each time they complete a Typing Pal activity without making any errors, and respecting their speed target, they will get a star on the chart displayed in the classroom.
  2. After every Typing Pal training session, log in to your Typing Pal account and go to the Activity Log of each of your students. Consult the User Guide for help with checking the Activity Log. For each student, count the number of activities that have a gold icon. This icon indicates an activity completed with no errors, within the target speed. Write the number onto Worksheet no. 7. Post the chart on the classroom wall.
  3. At the end of the week, calculate the total number of stars for each student and write this on Worksheet no. 7. The student with the most stars is awarded a privilege.


This activity can also be adapted for teamwork. Simply use one copy of Worksheet no. 7 per team.
