In week 5 we will continue learning the Home Row keys. Together we will recite our mnemonic before continuing with our activity for the day.
Mnemosyne, the Greek goddess of memory, will help you remember A, S, D, and F.
J, K, L, and semicolon are the Home Row keys for the right hand. Use the mnemonic: Just Keep Looking,
Starting with CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) and sight words, children at a young age participate in activities to practice spelling words. We are going to use the keyboard handout , Keyboard Spelling, as another way to get spelling practice. They will have fun spelling words on the white board before writing them on their handout. Students will then locate each letter on the keyboard and color it according to the colored row it belongs to.
