Typing Learning For Kids
Beginner Typing Lessons
By building from the baseline from the previous basic lessons, the Beginner Lessons represent what most students remember about learning to type. Building on the previous lessons, which dealt with letters themselves, the beginner lessons switch to focusing on the rows: The Home Row, The Top Row, The Bottom Row, the numbers, and the various alternate symbols thereof.
These lessons are best for those with basic knowledge of a keyboard and are a great place to start if your youngster is already “hunting and pecking” keys. By teaching the letters, numbers, and symbols in rows, these prepare the kids for the next rung of lessons. The lessons also begin to introduce the concept of typing short words, particularly those which are easy from the home row.
In each of these lessons, kids learn about typing short words beginning with a particular letter. By presenting these short words as a collection associated with the theme letter, the kids can truly appreciate the wide applicability of the lesson and begin to see how full words are built using a series of similar motions. The shortness of the words also highlights the fact that many of the words that you type are a combination of smaller units and can, therefore, be accomplished by a series of familiar movements.
By focusing on typing short words, rather than longer words or sentences, and not worrying about sentence case or proper nouns, these lessons allow the user to try their hand at multiple variations and movements, without becoming too focused on any one section or part.
