Four Online Sites to Teach Mouse Skills

It sounds easy, but to a five or six year old, holding the mouse, clicking that left button, dragging and dropping while holding a finger down is darn difficult. I found four programs that will make it painless:

Mousing Around–learn clicks, multiple clicks. Don’t be surprised when the kids start shouting out animal names.

mouse 1Bees and Honey–shorter, but concentrates on clicks and dragging-dropping

mouse2Tidy the classroom while learning clicks, double-clicks (difficult for youngers) and drag-and-drop

mouse22Mouse Program–for olders who can read, but a thorough exercise of the mouse skills

  8. hi,
    I lead a class of seniors in learning to use computer (Windows)
    We were using a game called Stacker and Fishing on a site called
    Mrs campbell’s Mouserobics. Recently most of these games
    now are redirected to a junior disney website which does not include these games.

    I would eal like to get this particular games for our students as they balnce the
    need for mouse skills without being to childish for seniors.

    • Here’s a site I came across that has mouse exercises for seniors–http://www.seniornet.org/howto/mouseexercises/mousepractice.html. I’ll see if I can find some others.

      I have moved to a self-hosted WordPress site–http://askatechteacher.com. You’ll find current material over there.

      • Dear acqui,
        Thank you . I will definitely use these exerrcises. They are just right. However I still liked the “Staker” and the “Fish” Games on Mrs campbells moserobics website. I was able to use them up until maybe October. lasy year. Do you understan whhy it now defaults to a Junior Disney website?
        ot how to get hold of Stacker and Fish?

        Yours Aye, (Scots for Always)

      • Hi Angus

        This website–http://www.alline.org/euro/games/mouse.html–has a lot of choices and several start with ‘fish’. See if it has what you’re looking for.
