Add this to your child’s curriculum this year!!!
I started a free trial of typekids with my 7 year old recently. This online typing course for kids gave us the first 3 courses free. We liked it, of course anything new is difficult, but I think this would be a good fit for her if I were to purchase it.
Seems to be easy to follow, detailed instructions with a pleasant instructor to walk you through everything. You can also ask questions if you have any. Progress reports help you to see your child’s strengths and weaknesses and they also have games at the end of each completed lesson for a reward…pretty cool!

You can get the complete 30 lesson course for $89.95, not too bad for a full year’s course, but I usually go for the free or cheapest curriculum possible to conserve especially on anything that is not core. My experience with this online curriculum has been satisfactory no problems or complaints that I can tell thus far.
