Have Homeschool Typing Skills You Can Be Proud Of
I received access to Typesy and was compensated for my time in writing this review. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
My mom made me take a typing class in high school.
We’re talking old school with a room full of typewriters.
It’s one of the best things she’s done for me.
My touch typing skills got me through college, classroom teaching, and eventually have proven to be one of the skills I use most on a daily basis.
In fact, I’m using it now.
What about our homeschooled kids?
Homeschool Typing is for All Ages
Why teach typing at all in the age of the computer?
Aren’t kids just keyboarding all the time now?
Some of our kids do use the computer a lot.
Others aren’t as proficient at using a keyboard.
But, we all need typing skills since we all use the computer .
- Makes working at a keyboard more efficient- and faster as a result
- Helps to avoid developing bad habits- for beginners just starting out
- Fixes poor habits in older students- if your kids aren’t keyboarding well, typing instruction will get them back on track
- Ensures that interfacing with technology is not a limiting factor- when you are working with your students on any project involving a computer and a keyboard
Times Our Kids Need Keyboard Efficiency
How often are your students at a keyboard these days?
For us, it’s often.
- Typing essays & papers
- Making presentations
- Writing computer programs
- Participating in online communities
What else do your students use a computer for?
Does their ability to type affect their performance?

How are you incorporating typing instruction into your homeschool?
I was homeschooled myself. I still remember that first computer in our dining room. We used Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing to practice.
that’s so great- thanks for sharing this!
I’m old. I learned to type on a manual typewriter in 9th grade. Having to do the math to figure out footnotes was the worst. And making corrections with correction tape!
Yes! We had electric ones in high school, but typing papers was no joke!
This looks like a great program! Typing is one of those subjects that I haven’t put a priority on, but thanks to your persuasive points, I definitely see that this is a necessary skill for my students. Thanks!
It is a great program!
Typing class in high school in the 80’s, one of the best classes I took!
Right? I had fun in mine too!
I took typing in middle school but didn’t really learn to type. Would love to actually learn along side my children.
What a fabulous idea! Good luck!
