Typing Training

Resources for 3-6 Teachers


The Common Core State Standards - W.CCR.6: "Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others."

Students should be accessing the Typing Training program 2-3 times per week for a total of 45 minutes a week of typing practice. After the program is introduced and students have had ample time to practice their technique with teacher guidance and supervision, they can access the program at home for extra practice. Please see the resources below for assistance in introducing keyboarding, monitoring progress and sharing information with families.
