My 6 year old loves this product He uses it on his laptop daily without prompting The correct keys light up on the screen to encourage the student to not look down at the keyboard He is learning very quickly and able to transfer this to proper keystrokes for the written portion of Rosetta Stone SpanishNo preparation is required on the parent's part I do glance at his hand and body position to ensure proper form You can check the progress the student is making on both speed and accuracyDefinitely worth the money Start early and teach them to type before bad habits form

This is a really great software to teach kids how to type It's so much more engaging and interactive than just using a book My 10 year old son is using this in our homeschool We both like the fact that he can just insert the CD-ROM listen to a few instructions and go One of the neat things about this program is that in the top portion of the screen will be the typing assignment (that highlights each letter as the child types it) then in the bottom portion there is an interactive illustration of a keyboard with moving handsshowing where to have the hands in "home row" and then what fingers to use to strike which keys Another thing I like is that the child has to demonstrate a certain level of proficiency before moving on to the next level At the end of each assignment your child gets a readout of their wpm and accuracy It's all done in a colorful and engaging format I highly recommend this software

I wanted something that would teach my kids the important skill of typing without me having to be right there next to them the entire time. This way, I can be working on Math or reading with one child while the other is doing typing on the computer.

method and fun typing

I have been meaning to get my 4th grader into typing since last year, and when I saw this program, I couldn't pass it up.

This seems to be a top pick for typing programs for kids. Rainbow Resources had the best price.
Mary P on Jun 27, 2016
I'd asked around, and this programs was highly recommended by some parents I know. It also received a stellar review from the Cathy Duffy book.
User on Jun 22, 2016
We enjoyed a similar program on our Windows machine and now we need one for our youngest child on a Mac.
Jodi L on Jun 6, 2016
Modern children need to know how to type as much as children of the past needed to know penmanship. We're still working on penmanship too, but typing is essential in today's world.
Diana R on Apr 23, 2016
I've used the previous versions for my older children and liked it.

Does this work with Windows 10.0?
User on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it works great! My kids have been using this program for the last two months with Windows 10 and haven't come across any issues.
Does this work with MAC OS X El Capitan?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
Can I use this for more than one student?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes! At the beginning you are able to add at least 4 to 5 different children and are able to set the difficulty per child! Then, when the child signs in, they just click their name and it will set to their particular progress, allowing each child to move forward at their own pace!
