Dance Mat Typing
It is a good idea to introduce your child to a typing tutor program that will teach them through fun and games and lots of repetition. Try to supervise your child make sure that they are doing the exercises properly and using the correct fingering on the keyboard.
I will be introducing the Dance Mat Typing Program to third grade students during LRC time. This program is an introduction to touch typing for school-aged children. Each of the 4 levels are divided into 3 stages. Students begin at Level 1 and build up their skills gradually to Level 4. When you can do it well, touch typing is the fastest way to write. Many people soon learn to type faster than they can write with a pen.
I will be encouraging students to practice at home to improve their typing skills.
