A local homeschooling mom asked if I had found a typing program for students in the higher grades. I highlighted this one in the past, but it's worth mentioning again. Our 12yo and 14yo students prefer this free typing course over others:
Peter's Online Typing Course
takes you through learning "touch typing" (that's what typing without
looking at the keys is called) through a series of lessons and exercises (including a custom exercise!).
I took the left-hand numbers lesson tonight while reviewing the site
for you, as that's my slow area, and in only a few minutes of typing
and testing (you type what it says to type while the site times you),
I improved quickly.
There aren't any flashy games, loud audio or interactive tests at Peter's Online Typing Course, but sometimes you just want to learn, not be entertained.
p.s. Want a course that is louder and entertaining for the younger grades? Try the free & fun Dance Mat Typing.
