Starting With Typesy Homeschool

Should I start with home row or is there any other way to do things?


We highly suggest starting with Typesy Kids or Interactive Curriculum first. Typesy Kids is suitable for age 6 - 8. Interactive Curriculum is more suitable for age 8 and above.

Hello there, @ebonielegge!

I highly suggest letting a typing program guide your learning. Otherwise you may find you’re spending a whole lot of time for very little progress. Luckily Typesy adapts to your needs as you progress, so you can rest assured you’re working at the speed best for you.

For touch typing, the first step for any new learner will be to learn their finger positions. Each finger has assigned letters based on the positioning of the hand over the keyboard. The middle row on a QWERTY keyboard will serve as the home row, the starting position for each finger. When typing, each finger has an assigned zone of keys, each requiring a movement of one or two keys away from home. After a finger has moved to type a letter, it will return to its home position. So yes, you’re right to be starting with home row!
