Beginner Typing Tutorial 6

"Hi, I am a new Business Apps teacher (middle school) and I actually teach typing to my 6th graders. I got a new student today so I did a Google search and found your site right away. I started her out at your site and I have to sing your praises. It is awesome and the new student will be able to catch up with the class in no time. I'm surprised that there is no way to donate money to keep this free site going. This site will be critical to the success of my students. Thank you!"

 Exercises

Type the instructions below the keyboard image, into the text boxes below them.
SPECIAL NOTE: Plesae ignore the brackets in this next section and just type what's [inside] them.
Typing in ALL CAPITALS.  This is known as UPPER CASE
When typing a word WITH ALL LETTERS IN CAPITALS push down the CAPS LOCK key beside the A key. When you're finished press the CAPS LOCK key again to return to normal.

You are not alone!

Apparently, every one tenth of a second, somewhere on earth, 600,000 people have just hit the space bar.  Who would have thought!
Introducing brackets ( ), Italics, Bold and Underline.

IMPORTANT NOTE: for Italics, bold and underline you will need to copy and paste the instructions into a word processing document as this website does not yet have a function for creating RICH TEXT (underline etc.) from user entry in a text area.
In this next section you will be practicing using the TAB key, CAPS lock, (brackets) and the exclaimation mark!
