Good Hands Go Home

Acronyms are a great way to help students (and adults) remember information.

Recalling the order of operations in math class would have been much more challenging if it weren’t for a fun phrase:

Please excuse my dear aunt Sally. (Parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction).

Given that typing uses all 26 letters of the alphabet, it would be nearly impossible (and rather pointless) to create an acronym to help students remember where each letter key is located.

There is, however, a great trick for helping kids remember where to place their fingers on the keyboard when they sit down to type.

This week, we’re excited to share this fun tip from one of our users for helping kids always find their way back to home row.

Once they learn it, it will likely stick with them for the rest of their lives.
