  2. Was considered? This web site offers teacher interaction features for free in which you can also tract your students progress. I used this website with my middle school students. It is a great tracting tool to monitor what your student can do and the progress they are making in their keyboarding skills.

  3. I also use for grades 3, 4, and 5 (K, 1, and 2 use Dance Mat Typing). It gives instant feedback to the students and myself. I can spot the student who is not on task immediately by checking their “typing time” as they are typing. Each week I post the list of all typists’ Net Typing Speed, high to low and let the competition ensue! The principal also announces the top 5 typists each week. This program is excellent!

    • That’s a great one–Typing Web. I’ve started recommending it to students when they are bored with DanceMat. It’s as effective as Type to Learn, though not quite as fun.

      I love that your principal is supportive of the typing program. That is so important.
