Summary & Rating: 4 I like these no frills and well balanced keyboarding lessons. Sometimes “Old-School” is just a good way to do something! The fact that the author uses scripture for practice during some of the lessons is a nice extra for us.
Actually I had planned to get an online typing program for my kids and had just not gotten around to it. However, now I am pleased to find that both children are into this version. Frankly, I was surprised.
I am glad though, for these ebook lessons, based on the QWERTY keyboard, carefully lead the kids. They are learning important things like posture and placement. With this, I can grade them and really see what they are learning. They do use the computer quite a bit and I think even my little one sees the value of typing.
Nick is doing the Keyboarding for the Christian School for grades 6 and up and Em is doing the Keyboarding for the Christian School, Elementary Version for students K-5. Both children are progressing nicely through the beginning Alphabetic keys lessons. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to have Em keep at it after the letters (she is little!) But Nick easily adds this into his schedule and has no problem with going through the paces. The older version will have him learning how to do all sorts of things, including MLA and APA formatting, proofreader’s marks, tables, etc.
I do recommend this simple, clear way of teaching keyboarding. The author also has other teaching tools. Stop by the website to see some samples of typing lessons.
