Hello, @juanrodriguez!

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you begin the homeschool Typesy journey!

Proper typing requires the strengthening of muscle memory which is best achieved through repetition. Therefore, teaching needs to involve repeating many skills-building lessons over time. Instead of dedicating one hour of instruction to keyboarding per week, it is much more beneficial to offer shorter bursts of practice time daily. No student will master keyboarding after one lesson, but with about 20 minutes of daily practice, most students should be more than proficient in touch typing within 2 or 3 months.

Typing skills can be enforced in stand alone activities or by adding keyboarding into core curricula already in place. Any assignment involving the use of computers can easily serve as a chance to review and reinforce good typing habits.

And remember, Typing practice does not need to be a mundane task! Utilize typing games to keep your kids engaged, and before you know it, they will be begging to practice their keyboarding skills. Aside from keeping lessons fun, typing games allow students to track their progress, happily focus on areas of weakness, and practice their hand-eye coordination, a skill much needed in touch typing.
