    Hi Everyone!  Just wondering what is everyone’s favorite way to reach typing? Also, what age do you teach it? Thanks so much!

    This is the one I’ve hard good things about. I would pay the small fee for the school ed. It’s not full of games. I am considering this for my 14 and 15 yr. olds.




    I like BBC’s Dance Mat Typing for the younger ages.  If you google it, you can find the website.  We have the Mavis Beacon typing on CD-ROM for the older DC, but there are plenty of free typing tutorials as well.  You can find the CD at Rainbow resource.

    We used Typer’s Island at ages 9 and 11.  It worked very well for us.  It uses games quite a bit that my kids really enjoyed.


    Typing Instructor worked really great for my 11 year old son. Within a year of small yet regular lessons he has gained so much ground. My 9 year old daughter has just started using it as well. Both enjoy it a lot and ask to use it. I found my copy on Amazon and the version for my MAC was surprisingly inexpensive (just a few dollars).
