Christian Keyboarding {Review}

Even though we spend a lot of time on handwriting, I am very aware of the importance of typing {hello, blog world!}. Both of our girls enjoy being on the computer and working on their own little blogs ~ but typing is a little difficult when you are hunting for letters that were long worn off the keyboard by your mom.

We were sent Keyboarding for the Christian School, Elementary Version and Keyboarding for the Christian School, Revised Edition from Christian Keyboarding to review with our girls ~ we only used the Elementary Version because the girls are still learning the basics.

About the Program 

Keyboarding for the Christian School, Elementary Version is for grades K-5 and has 32 lessons that start with basic keyboarding skills and progressively increase in difficulty. In the beginning students learn key placement and work up to typing Scripture as copywork. The lessons are laid out in the following format:

Lessons 1-20: Alphabetic Keys
Lessons 21-25: Numbers and Symbols Keys
Lessons 26-29: Number Pad
Lesson 30: Centering Vertically and Horizontally
Lesson 31: Enumerated Lists
Lesson 32: Timed Writings 

In Our Home 

To say Laurianna was excited to have typing lessons would really be an understatement. The second she saw the lessons in a binder, she propped them up on our counter, pulled out the laptop and had me explain what she needed to do. 

Right-this-very-moment.  

Laurianna worked on the first two lessons the first day and was able to do it independently after we went over the basics of the program. That evening when we were sitting at the table talking about our school day, Laurianna told everyone about her fff jjj fff jjj typing lessons with much excitement. :)  McKenna has also spent some time typing and Laurianna is now onto lesson five and doing great remembering where the keys are so far.

We have been really enjoying the program and both girls are anxious to know what days they will have lessons in their workboxes. Time has been a little limited right now since we are missing some of our computers {in the shop}, but they squeak in whatever time they can and love it!

  1. I am interested to know the names of your daughter’s blogs. My daughter is interested in computer technology and related areas. Maybe she would try making a blog if she saw that other kids are doing it.
