Very simple introduction to typing/keyboarding?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a very simple web-based game or program that introduces typing and using the keyboard? Everything I've found while looking around seems to already expect some proficiency, and even the beginning levels move quickly.


DD is 5 and loves to send emails to her father and to her grandparents, but she's finding it incredibly frustrating. I'm not looking to get her up to 90 wpm or anything: just some simple games that will help her remember where the letters are.

My absolute favorite is this: http://www.christianbook.com/keyboarding-skills-diana-king/9780838825648/pd/8825648


It's not a game, but one of those old-fashioned flip charts with one major difference: they keys are taught in alphabetical order, which makes them very easy to remember.


My middle dd, with just a little help from me to get started, used that book to teach herself how to type when she was 7. It only took her a few weeks to get the hang of it.
