I'm glad you found my post on balancing motherhood and teaching to be helpful! While I mentioned many things I am doing to help me strike a healthy balance, it is still something I am constantly struggling with on a daily basis. Luckily I am improving each year. I hope you are able to use some of my ideas I mentioned in my post to help you feel good about your teaching and your parenting.
We do typing camp at the beginning of the second half of the school year. The end of January or beginning of February is typically when our students go to typing camp. I'm not sure when the ideal time of year would be, but that timing works best for us at my school. I find that third grader are not ready for it at the beginning of the year, and the first half of the year is already so busy. January works well because the students come back from winter break and are enthusiastic about learning a new skill!
