Touch Typing has become just as important for our students as handwriting and the earlier our students learn, the better. However, do you know the best ways to go about teaching your elementary students how to type? With so many resources out there, it can be completely overwhelming to decide which to use. Join Lori Squiers as she explores resources that work well from PreK-5th grade, and most of them are free! She will cover various ways to teach typing skills, provide suggestions to make learning to type fun, and share some lessons you can use in your own classroom.
