The Best Keyboarding/ Typing Resources in One Place

Whew! We are working on being a 1:1 school, we are a STEM school, we have a abundance of technology in our Elementary School. What do we NOT have? Proficient typists.

This morning I spent some time on the phone with Kevin from Sunburst and we discussed a quote for Type to Learn 4. TTL is one of the best keyboarding resources out there. At the initial rate of 899.00 with a 100.00 renewable annual fee, however, TTL is not in the budget.

I hit the web running and was delighted to find so MANY differentiated, fun, effective resources at www.abcya.com! TBH, before this morning I viewed abcya.com as one of those sites to hit when you need a "holiday" theme web assignment but I hit the jackpot for keyboarding resources.

Below are links to the keyboarding "games" I found at abcya.com. The list goes from K - 5.
