Reviewing the keyboard keys - shift, delete, spacebar, caps lock, return, arrows, esc, command, control etc. along with word processing skills such as margins, line spacing, spell check etc. using (Microsoft Word). We will be learning how to type this year. Bringing in clipart/pictures and resizing. We will also be reviewing . . . Text options: Color, font, size, style etc. We will be using a Typing Web site which they have their own username and password. Also teaching the students to use the correct fingers. Below are some links to practice their typing. Also they can go to the Download area to the right of their class page for additional typing links. Practicing at home 10 to 15 minutes a night would be fantastic. Coding we will introduce this year too!
Make sure you ask one of your parents before using these sites.
