Learn to Keyboard
All students in Grades 3-5 should be practicing their keyboarding skills. In today's world, it is very important for EVERYONE to learn to keyboard correctly. Students in Grades 3 have been practicing during computer class and in their classrooms to learn proper finger placement and positioning. But they will not be able to transfer this information to their fingertips without lots of Practice, Practice, Practice. Students can use learning.com at home to repeat any missed lessons or for further practice. There are many terrific typing programs available that you can purchase and install at home. Also, there is a list of fun, free online typing games listed on my links page. The ideal would be for every student to practice for 10-15 minutes per day. If you have a 4th or 5th grader who still needs to learn their keyboarding skills, learning.com provides a fun, fast way to help them reinforce proper positioning. Students can also access the free, online practice programs and should practice 10-15 minutes per day. Keyboarding will be an invaluable skill. It is easier for them to learn it properly now and correct mistakes now, than it will be in the future.
