Keyboarding Starts Here

I’ve used lots of methods to teach keyboarding to kindergarten through fifth graders. The most effective is a good software program that keeps track of a student’s progress.

Use use Type to Learn, but there are options. Pick one and go with it throughout the year. Sure, take a break for online variety, but return to the software.
