Keyboarding Resources

Integrate keyboarding into your daily routine

  • Set aside a regular time for keyboarding (ideally 15 to 30 minutes/day for five to six weeks), THEN:
  • USE these techniques while in front of any computer
  • Have your child type their social studies or reading assignment or spelling words for the week
  • Include a five minute “warm-up” using a keyboarding game before “getting down to keying in a paper”
  • Have your child compose A to Z lists (ie. Animals, girls names, etc.)
