Teaching Typing?

I am insisting that my kids learn basic typing. With computers and keyboards everywhere, it just seems negligent of me not to.

So...I found a way to keep it FUN AND FREE!

Learn2Type is a neat site in which you can create logins (we have 2, one for the older kids and one for the younger), and drill on different levels. Younger children can do two finger typing just to show them where the keys are, while older kids learn proper placement of all fingers!

I also made a new chart out over the weekend for them to check off every day that they complete this task, as it is now an assignment! :-)

The best thing about this site is what? Yes, it's free...I mean frugal!
