In our Keyboarding Unit, we will be learning the proper keyboarding techniques. You will have time for some keyboarding practice with periodical keyboarding assessments throughout the year. See below for your keyboarding goals.



Thinking Question: (You will need to answer this question at the end of the unit.)
Why is it important to learn the correct keyboarding position and vocabulary?

Keyboarding Goals:

3rd Grade = 10 wpm
4th Grade = 15 wpm
5th Grade = 20 wpm

Kindergarten/First Grade will practice mouse exercises such as click, double click, and click & drag.
Second grade will practice all the above mouse exercises but add keyboarding of home row keys.
