1. To determine a true count of WPM on typing.com by completing a typing test WITHOUT looking at their fingers at all.
2. To learn how to determine if something is TRUE (the first letter in our acronym for posting things online) and to complete a kidblog about the importance of determining whether or not something is true.
3. To begin working on a poster in MS word of the "Top Ten" keyboard shortcuts.
Day 1 - students will practice for one minute test and we will discuss how to evaluate whether or not something found online is "true." Students will have access to their kidblog to begin the discussion about this topic.
Day 2 - students can continue working on kidblog but will also be introduced to the poster assignment for keyboard shortcuts in MS word. At some point during the class they will take a one minute timed test without looking at fingers to determine a real baseline of WPM.
