Preparing Students for "Home Row" Keyboarding.
Pre-Keys 2 is a multi-sensory method for introducing young students to the computer keyboard BEFORE they establish poor keyboarding habits! Pre-Keys kids start on the number row and dance on Pre-Keys Lily Pads before moving their finger froggies to the traditional keyboard.
Much like the effects of music lessons, students who learn to type are better readers, better writers . . . and better students! However, students who begin using computers before they are formally trained develop poor typing habits that are difficult to change later in life.
