4th Grade Keyboarding Homework
Please practice keyboarding for 20 to 30 minutes a day. You may use keyboarding software you already have, a keyboarding Web Site or open a word processing program and use the lines below to practice. Please remember to always use proper fingering when practicing.
Keyboarding Web Sites
Please remember to always use proper fingering when practicing. When you are playing a keyboarding game, don't be tempted to use improper fingering.
To use these practice lines:
1: Open your word processing program.
2: Come back to this Web Page and select the lines to practice. Go to Edit and Copy.
3: Go to your word processing program and go to Edit and Paste.
4: Practice typing the lines you pasted. Make up new words using the letters you have learned and practice typing those new words.
Remember to use your right little finger to reach for the Enter/Return key and the Backspace/Delete key. Your fingers need to remain on the home row keys as much as possible.

Break the habit of looking from the copy to the monitor and down at your hands. Looking away from the copy will keep you from building up your speed and becoming a better keyboarder. Keeping your eyes on the copy is your goal. When you look from the copy to check the monitor you lose your place and waste time trying to find it again. Lost time can lower your speed. So do not look away.
