Where in the USA am I?
We use the internet daily, making good use of the many free sites that offer educational activities to reinforce many of the skills being taught in the classroom. Naturally, we use the internet for research projects and quite often use the ever popular Microsoft Office software (Word, PowerPoint and Excel) to create a finished product.
Our students from grades three through six use the software "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing" to learn the touch typing method. From the first lesson that introduces home row through lessons offered via dictation, the children use keyboard shields that prohibit them from peeking at the keys! It isn't easy at first, but we've sent several 6th graders to the Junior High typing over 30 words per minute!
