Dance Mat Typing Level 4 - Stage 10
Keys: x, and .
Stage 10 of Dance Mat Typing’s Level 4 focuses on the two remaining letters in the bottom row, which are x, z, and also the ‘ (apostrophe). This stage will then finish all the letters so the review is necessary to ensure that you are ready to learn about the last remaining letters to move on to punctuation marks. After you have the home row, top row, and the letters of the bottom row tackled in Level 3 understood nicely, the game will teach you how to use the x, z, and ‘ keys. To use the z, we use the finger that rests on the a key on home row, i.e. the pinky. Your left hand’s pinky presses three letters then: a, q, and z. For x, we use the finger that rests on s, above x. This is the ring finger of your left hand, which now uses three keys: s, w, and x. For the apostrophe, the game teaches you how you use your right hand’s pinky to move to the right and hit the ‘ key. The little finger of your right hand now hits the semi colon, the p key and the ‘ key. Check the smashed plates at the bottom of the game to see your progress.
Dance Mat Typing Level 4 - Stage 11
Keys: z and /
Learning how to use all the letters on the home row, top row, and the bottom row were all covered in the past levels up till stage 10, where we learned how to use the last two letters, x, and z. But typing just doesn’t consist of letters but also punctuation so it is necessary to know how to use the most common punctuation marks on the keyboard. We already covered the semi colon and the apostrophe, so now we get to the slash and full-stop keys. First, begin with reviewing your past learning, especially the keys learned in level 3 and Stage 10 of Level 4. After you have accomplished that, you are ready to learn about the new punctuation mark keys. The full-stop is hit using your left hand’s ring finger that is on l in the home row. The slash is hit using your pinky finger of your right hand, like for p. This way, you have two main punctuations understood in this stage. Use the bottom bar with weights for your progress check.
Dance Mat Typing Level4 - Stage 12
Keys: shift keys
Stage 12 is the last stage of the Dance Mat Typing. In the past 3 levels and 11 stages, you learned how to use the home row letters, top and bottom row letters as well as all the main punctuation marks, which were semi colon, comma, full-stop, and forward slash. Now the last Stage of Dance Mat Typing shows you how to capitalize your words, using the shift keys in full hand typing. However, the last stage requires reviewing all the more, so that you are perfect at full hand! Review all the past stages lessons by typing with full hands and see your progress in the status bar with the broken records. Then, you are ready to learn how to capitalize. There are two shift keys on keyboards, respective to your right and left hands. Use the pinky finger on your left to press the shift bar next to it and use the pinky finger on your right to use the shift bar there. Stage 12 will help you practice this for a while as you learn how to capitalize. Then, you are done with good practice of how to type full hand!
