Dance Mat Typing Level 1 - Stage 1

Dance Mat Typing Stage 1

Keys: f d s a j k l ; g h

Stage one starts off the beginning of the Dance Mat Typing. It starts with the home row of the keyboard.

The home row keys are the main or the center row of your keyboard. It is the row that begins with a, s, d, and ends with k, l, and the semi colon. However,  they are ordered as per the position of your hands. Your left hand fingers sit upon the letters f, d, s, and a whereas your right hand fingers sit upon j, k, l, and ;.

Your thumbs hit the space bar when needed. The leftover over keys on the row, i.e. g and h are used by your pointer fingers. When needed, your left hand’s pointer finger switches from f to g and your left switches from j to h. This allows you to cover the keys in the home row. Then gets the user used to using these keys with the right fingers by asking you to type different words and letters.

You can keep yourself updated throughout the level by the help of the “smashed records” bar that is placed on the bottom of the screen while going through Typing. is listed by the kidSAFE Seal Program. is listed by the kidSAFE Seal Program. To learn more, click on the seal or go to
