This is a fun, free program for kids on the internet. Once in a while
it can be a little "glitchy" and when the child types on a key, nothing happens.
First try pressing "Esc" button. If that does not fix it, hit the refresh/reload button.
This will start the child again at the beginning of the section they were typing in,
but this just provides a little more typing practice- not a bad thing! Fortunately, it doesn't happen too often.
All students have accounts with Typing Pal. Typing pal allows students to save their progress. It is a little more of a "serious" typing program, possibly better to use with older students who already have begun typing with a more "child-friendly" program such as BBC DanceMat Typing. Different children prefer different programs.
How to sign-in to Typing Pal:
South Kingstown has a subscription to Typing Pal. This is available to students via their g-mail accounts. Using this program enables students to track their typing speed/accuracy over time to see the progress they have made.
