How to teach where all the letters are on the keyboard?

Welcome to free TypingGames.Zone website to teach kids how to type. We believe that learning a new motor skill can be boosted by gaming. Our primary mission is to offer both fun and effective way to improve the keyboarding skills. Various gaming genres motivate the whole classroom to develop their keyboard writing speed and accuracy. The students will learn both hand eye coordination and muscle memory. These are two most important elements of touch-type method.

How to make keyboarding fun?

Keyboard Gaming website has proven to be effective for learning how to quickly pick up a new skill. Students are challenged more and more at just the right times and rewarded upon completion. An excellent way to make keyboard lessons more fun and motivating is to turn each keyboarding lesson into a WPM VideoGame by encouraging your students to type as fast as possible. A keyboard gaming site helps students to practice their keyboarding skills by challenging them to work harder to reach each goal. A wpm game should be age appropriate and attainable for students based on their ability. For younger kids, try choosing easy gaming lessons to make the goal small so it is easy to accomplish. For older children you can make the gaming lessons harder. They key to encouraging students to participate is to offer positive feedback and give them several chances to try to beat their highest wpm.

How to engage students to learn to type?

In our easy and fun educational website children type to learn finger positions and also learn how to read and write. In addition to these core skills our site also pays attention to teach essential spelling and touch-typing skills. For adults we highly recommend our fun Nitro Typing Racer Game, where you practice to write most common english words and learn spelling. In Type Racer gamer controls both the speed and direction of the race car (and don't forget to jump time to time, to launch nitro type spacebar any time when there is a car front of you).

Why do kids need to learn to type early?

Kids start to play with mobile phones, laptops and tablets at the age of 3-5. Soon after that they will start keyboarding at school. If they are not taught properly in the beginning, they usually start using a two-finger system which can be very difficult to change later.

When kids should start to learn to touch-type?

Touch-type method is a basic skill that simply needs both time and a lot of practice. When kids start learning keys early they have a better chance of building higher typewriting speed and accuracy. They can start learning keyboarding as early as the first grade, but their hands may be too small until they are 7 or 8 years old.

Keyboarding is a core skill for all students to learn. Why not let the kids have fun typing together? This was the idea for the development of this free keyboarding web site. Our multiple innovative lessons will help kids to learn how to become effective keyboarders. Each keyboard gaming app that has "choose keys to learn menu" can be tailored to meet their individual needs.

How to make a fun keyboard training lesson plan?

Advancing keyboarding skills is at the heart of many teachers. They want to see their kids typewrite quickly just as bad as each kid wants to be the fastest typist. Each gaming app associated with our website provides a different interface, theme or strategy to be utilized when participating. Some videogames feature different levels from easy to hard. The differentiation between each level can help give students a goal to strive for. This keeps the kids interested and focused on the task at hand.

Learning the entire keyboard can often be difficult. Fingers that are being used for typewriting should be limited into very few in the begin. Our gaming website offers the ability to learn different portions of the keyboard at once. Home row, extended home row, upper row, all letters, a combination of letters and numbers and 10-key options headline the different courses of action for the individual. This can benefit the teachers in the sense of a true lesson plan. Teacher can ask everyone to start with home row keys only (with our Dance Mat and Type And Run Game) and then progress slowly to all letters on the keyboard with KeyMan and KeyTower. Only after each key has first been trained separately, it's a good time to start to type words by playing TypingRace and TypingAttack. This kind of "bottom to up" learning process supports all kids.

The development of various free keyboarding online web sites (TypeTastic, BBC Dance Mat, TypeMaster, TypeTrainer, TypeQuest, Typing Web, etc.) has made some incredible progress in recent history. Students have been able to benefit from the new innovations and teachers have gotten useful tools to promote valuable keyboarding skills. Nowadays keyboarding practice lessons can be more fun than ever in history! Now you can arrange a short summer keyboarding camp every day.

What are the primary advantages of keyboarding skills for kids?

  • The fingers will develop the muscle memory.
  • Hand-eye coordination gets better.
  • Alternative method for students having issues with handwriting.
  • Increase words per minute speed and accuracy.
  • Kids learn also spelling words and vocabulary.
  • Better work opportunities when kids are adults.
