Typing Practice Website

Animated Computer

With technology becoming an extremely important aspect of all classrooms, it is important that we help students develop skills that will help them become more successful. In our classroom, the students are using all types of technology to expand their understanding of the standards. We are also working on helping students become more efficient typers. The following website is a neat resource for learning how to become a better typer. Each of the lessons focus on using the home keys to become more effective. There are different levels and games that the kids can select. I hope you enjoy! Happy Typing!
