Use this set of Google Sheets Digital Pixel Art to have students practice typing their usernames or other words of your choosing! After following the easy editing directions to quickly set up the sheets (no coding necessary), students type their username correctly 10 times to AUTO-GENERATE one of 10 pixel art images in Google™ Sheets (or Microsoft Excel™).” This self-checking, EDITABLE, digital activity works with ANY device with Google™ Sheets (iPads, Chromebooks, and more) and includes a version for username practice or any custom word list.
The pixel art is already coded for you. Teachers or students just need to paste their usernames or word lists into Column A. If you have seen my Digital Magic Reveal Sets and wanted to create quick typing practice without the coding or formulas, then this set is for you! Plus the included directions make it easy for all tech comfort levels.
Students will know they have typed the correct answer if they see pixels appearing! If nothing happens, then students know to self-correct their answer. Students do NOT need to be familiar with Google Sheets to do this activity.
This set also has a bonus “prize” image. Students will enter in the 10 secret numbers revealed on each image to view the bonus image.

★ 10 Pixel Art images are available with 10 opportunities for students to type usernames or text.
★ 2 Versions included are:

Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
