Product Description
In today's computer-driven world, keyboarding skills are more important than ever! One thing many students struggle with as they learn to type is how to insert the proper punctuation in their work. Use this Powerpoint-style presentation to teach students the function of the shift key in typing common punctuation marks. This presentation assumes that students will be typing on a standard U.S. keyboard. Each instructional slide(s) is followed by examples for independent student practice.

This presentation is intended for use by students at every grade level, but is ideal for students in 3rd grade and above.

Students will learn how to:
-Identify when and how to use the shift key to type punctuation marks
-Type the most common punctuation marks (period, comma, apostrophe, question mark, exclamation mark, and quotation marks)
-Apply the above skills to type additional, less commonly used punctuation marks (hyphen, colon, semicolon, ampersand, at symbol, etc.)

Additional information:

*The purpose of each punctuation mark is briefly described, but this presentation is NOT intended to teach students in depth how to properly punctuate their writing.

*This presentation does NOT provide instruction for typing math-specific symbols or equations. For math-specific typing skills instruction, see "Typing in Math": https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Typing-in-Math-3686178

*Due to formatting issues across Powerpoint versions and operating systems, this download is available instead as a pdf file.
