What We Do at Typing Camp: Days 3 and 4

By Beth Newingham on May 23, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

After day 2 of Typing Camp, students begin completing "missions" in Type to Learn 3. They move through the levels at their own pace by first completing a tutorial and then passing a challenge game in order to complete each level. This program is great because the teacher can easily print reports to see how each child is progressing. On days 3 and 4 students also begin using SpeedSkins.

SpeedSkins ensure that students are not looking at their fingers when typing. This requires them to truly use the correct finger for each letter.
