Product Description:

Keyboarding is now a critical skill that should be taught correctly from the start. When children are not given directed instructions on keyboarding, they will begin to develop their own techniques which generally limit accuracy and speed. Dr. Fry's Computer Keyboarding for Beginners is designed to teach your child to keyboard using the correct method. By the end of the 20 lessons, your child will know the location of the letters and symbols on the keyboard (and which fingers are used to strike which keys) and be able to accurately use the 10 finger touch type method.

Wanted a keyboarding program that was easy to use and didn't require software that becomes out dated.

I used this curriculum two summers ago and really liked it! It works well with my 3rd & 5th graders at that time.

Pg. 57. "Spelling Demons"??? What in the world is that talking about?
Tracy on Jul 16, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The top of the same page (57) explains: "Spelling demons are words that are frequently misspelled. They are listed here in alphabetical order. For practice, try typing each word three times, spacing between words, and pressing the Return or Enter key at the end of each line." Additionally, in the Introduction on page 6, the author says this under "Keyboarding Spelling Demons": "Research studies have shown that most spelling errors come from a relatively small list of words. These misspelled words are sometimes referred to as 'spelling demons.' To help students improve their spelling, you may wish to have them practice keyboarding the spelling demons on page 55 [sic] a few at a time."
In other words, the author is using "demon" figuratively, in the sense of something that torments people but in a non-spiritual sense. Hope this helps.
Is 4 years old too early?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I would say wait until they know their letters and can read a little before attempting, but you know your child best. Maybe it isn't too early. Anyway, this is so inexpensive and doesn't take up too much space, it's easy to put away if you find out it is too early.
HOW IS TYPING TAUGHT? IS A DISC USED
A shopper on Sep 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, a disc is not used. There are individual written lessons with finger placements and introductions to new points and then exercises to apply those lessons. It's very similar to how we were taught on typewriters in school years ago. (ASDF JKL; etc...) I have used it with my 5th and 7th grader with great success. It reiterates the proper hand placement for correct and speedy typing skills and It lets students progress at their own speed. Great book for the price!

Excellent
My kids are doing this and I am thoroughly amazed they appear to actually type correctly. I have never learned more than advanced "hen pecking". Seven days spent on each successive lesson. So it's truely learning by repetition.
