I have been seeing a quote all over Facebook that states, “You cannot raise your children as your parents raised you, because your parents raised you for a world that no longer exists.” That goes hand in hand with the importance of kids knowing to type! In our society today, I feel that our kids and any future kids will have to know how to type in order to survive the world that we live in now. Knowing this, I was thrilled to get my hands on Typesy Homeschool Edition.
The fact is when I was in high school computers were just starting to make their grand appearance as ONE computer in ONLY the school library. I was encouraged by my then boyfriend to take the keyboarding class that was being offered. Since I was a country horse riding lady, the mere thought of taking a “keyboarding” class was nothing short of a hoot for me. Yet, I took that “keyboarding” class and ended up being the one student in class who could race against the teacher and beat her once or twice.
My kids are raised up in a world where computers and smart devices are a part of the norm for them. My kids alone have multiple electronic devices each! They have learned how to type using the pecking method, and that's why I'm glad they had the chance to review Typesy. The correct typing method allows them to learn keyboarding shortcuts, improve their postures, and also makes them faster than their competitors.
Typesy is an online typing curriculum that is filled with many gems. This typing curriculum comes with over 1600 game-like lessons. We are able to download the curriculum on any device we want as much as we want. We are able to pick up where we left off regardless to which device we use. Unlike other online courses, it doesn't use up a lot of data so that means my kids can spend more time on it. It comes included with 17 games they can play. It is an 100% ad free online typing curriculum.
Why I Like Typesy Homeschool Typing Tool
I'm definitely a fan of this program because Delbert and Zeva spent hours completing it without an ounce of complaining. To them, it felt more like a game than schoolwork. They literally restarted after Delbert reached level 3, just so they could complete it together in a race like fashion. The curriculum is easy to follow and complies with the national standards.
I even had some fun doing some of the lessons with the kids. I've slowed down quite a bit since high school due to a broken middle finger, but I was still able to impress them. It seems to be harder to impress the kids nowadays.
