Typing

3rd and 4th Grade – Dance Mat Typing

Dance Mat Typing is a typing game that offers instruction for students in the basics of typing.  There are 12 lessons (stages) broken into four units (levels).  Headphones are recommended, since there is spoken instruction in the lessons and music.

5th Grade – Typing Club

Typing Club is a website that offers many pages of typing practice.  We do three selected pages from Typing Club each week, for a total of 12 weeks.  The selections for 5th grade focus mainly on capital letters and punctuation, in addition to practicing fundamental skills.  Headphones are not needed.
