I have used this successfully with advanced first graders, but I have found that many students of upper grades could use this practice as well.

This is one of several copy and paste templates available for practice.

Other templates provide additional copy and paste and cut and paste practice using numbers, animals, push and pull, etc.

Download the template, distribute to student's computers, demonstrate how to copy and paste and give them 20 minutes or so to complete the practice sheet.
