Type to Learn 4 software download for home use
TTL4

http://ttl4.sunburst.com/downloads/

3rd grade students have begun the keyboarding program entitled Type to Learn 4. Our district license provides you the opportunity to download the program at home for continued keyboard practice. Here are the directions you will need to acquire the software.
2. Click either the Windows Client or Mac Client version, depending upon your home computer.The program is quite large so it will take time.
3. Once loaded, your child will enter the username and password I created for them. The first time you log into the program you will need to enter our access code which is 152229.

*The student username is the the first initial and last name with no spaces, capital letters, hyphens, or apostrophes - example John O'Neil's username would be joneil.

The password is the year the student graduates from high school, which for this year's 3rd graders, is 2026 and 2025 for 4th graders.
