2.3.Computer Literacy: Number Keys

Use this lesson to help introduce your students to the number keys.

Though a 10-key number pad is not required to use our software, several activities in Waterford Early Learning’s first and second grade math curriculum encourage students to use the keypad in speed-based games. The Number Keys lesson helps student practice using the 10-key number pad or the number bar.
