Activity 3: QWERTY Keyboard

Once upon a time, there were specialist typewriting teachers who had techniques to teach to get to faster typewriting skills and not peck and hunt like we do. As the typewriters faded away, so did the typing technique. Bring it back...here is what experts have to say http://www.educationworld.com/a_tech/tech/tech072.shtml

Next time when you are with the laptop, open a new Word document , I like to increase the font size to 24 or higher .. as I engage my kids with a fun typing game .. type your name.. spell the animals, number, press enter and go to new line, change font color etc.. and they love doing their “work” and pretend to be busy grownups as they acquire some basic keyboard skills

Also download the free keyboard and monitor printable and make your own laptop craft so they can pretend play when they do not have access to your computer. All you need is any packing box (carton) which can be repurposed for this craft.


Activity 4: Sing Z to A

It’s really fun but very hard. Why sing Z to A? – It’s a great way to reinforce the love of alphabets. Most kids or adults cannot say the alphabet backward, and this new talent will give your kids a confidence boost and a super fun thing to know I promise! Use the reference chart and sing to the Z to A song.

Listen to the Audio
