Lets start with 20 minutes of typing practice. Now to be honest with my students I don’t like “typing practice” we code that is what we do, we use our brains to figure out and create simple and complex codes. However just like learning to write you have to know how to type I learned using the home keys ASDF JKL: on what we call the Qwerty keyboard. I am not saying you have to learn the way I did but I can type without looking at the keys. Which is a pretty cool trick. You can be a quick person that uses two fingers to peck out the words and as long as you are pretty fast then that is okay. But you have to be able to type with speed and accuracy so from time to time we will practice typing.
Here is the Qwerty keyboard with proper finger placement.
