For the next two months, Grades 3-7 will be using a website called Typing Club to improve student Typing skills.
TypingClub can be used in the classroom and at home. For the next 60 days, Sacred Heart students will be taking advantage of a free trial period to determine if TypingClub will be an improvement over our previous Typing website called Typing Agent.
How to get there:
Students can access Typing Club at the URL below. They will need to sign in to their school gmail accounts to gain access.
TypingClub is an educational program that will help students learn to type quickly and accurately on a standard computer keyboard. The program is fully web-based, so students can use it to practice keyboarding in class, at home, or anywhere an internet connection can be found.
If parents would like to help at home, the most important thing for your child to focus on while practicing is to avoid looking at the keyboard while typing. Also, it is extremely important for students to continuosly return their fingers to the home row keys while typing.
I am very excited to share TypingClub with you and to work toward developing your child's keyboarding skills. Together, we can help perfect a skill set that will be indispensable to your child in the future.
