Grades 1-5: Will use Typing.com for instruction and assessment during all 3 trimesters.
Can use any of the other typing programs for practice & fun.
Grade K: Will use typing programs that are on a sub page on the Kindergarten Tab for the first two trimesters. They will use Typing.com at the end of the 3rd trimester.
We will be using typing.com for our tests and lessons.
Start with fingers on the home row keys. When finished, record the date, your speed and accuracy.
You must sign in to your account first in order for the program to keep a record of your scores. Make sure you record your scores on your logs.
