Lesson 14: Learning the numbers123
Numbers are best learned when associated with the corresponding home row finger. Read the paragraph Finger Positions to avoid retyping due to incorrect fingerings for each number. KeepF and J fingers on keys — rotate the hand for the number row.
No more than 3 errors per line. Retype the line if more than 3 errors occur. Observing your typing errors by you and your teacher is an important step toward learning to type and improving accuracy. Typing errors cannot be corrected using the backspace, delete, or arrow keys.
Number 1 is typed with the A finger — Practice a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1 a1
Number 2 is typed with the S finger — Practice s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2 s2
Number 3 is typed with the D finger — Practice d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3 d3
Goal is to learn the number row without looking at the numbers - numeric pad is not to be used
Type for THREE errors or less per line — proofread carefully after a line is typed
Use correct spacing after all punctuation
Keeping F and J fingers on keys - rotate hands for number row
