Review and get better at your typing. A standard word requires 5 strokes. The exercise here will help you type a standard word. You will be given 30 seconds to type each line. Do not correct the errors. If you make a mistake, continue typing. This is your first timed practice. Keep a record of your timing each time. Enjoy!
The semi-colon finger moves to the right to strike the apostrophe key. The apostrophe key is part of a word so there is no space after it.
Usage of the apostrophe key:
- To show possession – This is Donna’s book.
- To contract two words – Donna can’t go tomorrow.
Observe the position of the apostrophe key. Place you fingers on the home-row keys. With the semi-colon finger, move it to the right and touch the apostrophe key 10 times. Good job! Now for some practice.
