Do you remember learning to type in junior high or high school? I’m not sure how they do it these days, but if you’re old, like me, you probably remember typing “asdf jkl;” or “The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog,” from those little stand-up books. These days there are all kinds of high-tech computer typing programs — and my kids don’t really care for them…well, the oldest, anyway. I haven’t bothered trying to teach the younger two to type yet since we’re still working on reading fluency.
If you’re looking for a good, basic typing program similar to the probably old-fashioned way that you learned to type, Keyboarding for the Christian School may be just what you’re looking for. Available as an immediate eBook download, there are two versions to choose from: the Revised edition, geared towards kids in grades 6 and up is only $15.95, and the Elementary version, for kids in grades K-5, is only $12.95. For a limited time, you can purchase both editions for only $22.
The Elementary edition features short lessons, focusing on only familiarizing the student with the keyboard and the basic typing skills. Each lesson begins features Miss Mabel Ladybug, a colorful little icon who offers a daily verse from God’s Word.
The Revised edition covers all the essential typing skills, using Scripture verses and text taken from Christian writings to teach skills such as:
- MLA and APA reports
- works cited
- proof-reading marks
