I also just started using the handwriting for my 7-year-old. We love the handwriting book. Simple and
  5. What age/grade do you start teaching basic computer skills (Word, Powerpoint, Google Drive)? Digital citizenship? And how/what do you use to teach these things? What age/grade do your students start typing papers, etc. on a computer? I've started teaching typing in 3rd grade but have no clue after that...my oldest is now 10.
