Excellent Typing Program for Kids!
We’ve been using this typing program for a few months now and it is absolutely wonderful! I really like the animation and games, but the best part for me is that the program is flexible. I started out my 8 year old on the regular program and quickly discovered that while she was good at the home keys, she wasn’t ready for the top or bottom row. The program allowed me to go back and reprogram it, so that she is only working on the home row throughout the entire game. Love that feature! Unlike other typing programs that throw the kids into the other levels too quickly, this one allows them to work at their own pace with success. Mickey is a HIT in our family!
Worthy Every Penny- Great App!
I've been trying to teach my kids to type for a year now with little success. I have twin nine year old boys, who are sweet and full of energy. This is the first program that has worked for our family. It's worth every penny. It makes it so easy for us to stick to learning to type, and lets me go back and reprogram if it one of the kids needs to review a row. The game lets you select a typing plan and then tracks your progress. I love that it allows 5 users, my husband and I have improved our typing skills too! My kids and I like to compete practicing Disney stories. This is the perfect app for anyone who wants their kids to love learning to type.
Fun - Worth the Money
Kids start using computers at such an early age, these days. I wanted my 3 kids - ages 5, 6 1/2 & 8 - to have the advantage of typing with proper form and not just using their index fingers. The challenge for me was to find the right method of training that would keep them interested while they learned to type. This app was a great choice. My kids are having so much fun typing through the games - they love all the Disney characters. I've even changed the skill level and tried it out myself - really fun!
