Keyboarding Skills


I've been trying hard all year to help my students become more proficient at their keyboarding skills. We work hard in class to improve our speed and accuracy, but it's also helpful if students can practice at home. 


Here are some websites that you can use to help your students (or own children) practice their keyboarding skills:


Online Lessons:


Practice Games:

Speed Tests:

If you want a paper note to print out to send home with parents, you can use this one I typed up. It includes the Utah benchmark goals (per grade level) for words per minute, to help give parents an idea of where their children should be.

Thank you for the useful resource. I have tried a few but now have more sites to choose from. I appreciate the range in grades.

Thank you for these GREAT typing resources! Especially the handout for parents -- so neat! Are you familiar with Typing Web? That is another great typing resource and allows you to keep track of students progress.
