*4th - 8th Grade Keyboarding Practice*
This year, our class will be working with TypingClub in the classroom and at home.
TypingClub is an educational program that will help students learn to type quickly and accurately on a standard computer keyboard. The program is fully web-based, so students can use it to practice keyboarding in class, at home, or anywhere an internet connection can be found.
To log in to your child's TypingClub account, go to the following login URL:
Username: first initial last name
Password: *No Password Needed*
If you would like to help at home, the most important thing for your child to focus on while practicing is to avoid looking at the keyboard while typing.
I am very excited to share TypingClub with you and to work toward developing your child's keyboarding skills. Together, we can help perfect a skill set that will be indispensable to your child in the future.
All the best,
