I’ve known that Typesy is based on Common Core so what should we expect on this program?
I hope you are having a great day.
A touch typing software that offers a Homeschool Edition is Typesy. All the typing lessons in its program are mandated by the Common Core. Parents and children will find it super convenient that they can receive standard education that both can agree on. Learners acquire keyboard skills while incorporating other subjects as well, as Typesy’s exercise activities often feature literary classics. Thus, assignments, tests, and homeschooling in general are easy and manageable, while also in-tune with the Common Core Standards.
Thanks, and I hope that helped.

Hi there, @hermannelson!
The common core standards do not really specify how to teach keyboarding or which skills should be earned by which grade. The standards are meant to be open guidelines rather than prescriptions.
What the standards do dictate is that keyboarding is deemed an essential skill. As the world continues to rely more heavily on technology, the ability to type has now become a necessary skill for any and all entering the 21st-century workforce.
The common core standards may not give you a roadmap to teaching typing, but luckily there are programs like Typesy, designed to ensure your learners meet and exceed the standards set for them. Typesy has over 2,500 common-core standards-based lessons, so your students will be learning to type while engaging in fun, differentiated lessons in science, social studies, ELA, and math.
