  • Due to the small size of students' hands, this Lesson does not teach proper keyboarding finger placement. A later unit, entitled Keyboarding, addresses proper touch keyboarding skills.

  • To help students gain additional practice using the number keys on the keyboard, have them type the numbers in a blank word processing window as you call out the name of each number. Consider mixing up the numbers. Then, hold up or point to items in the classroom that students can count, either out loud and together as a class or quietly to themselves. After they count the items, students can type the number.
