Kids Academy: 1st through 3rd Grade

*$365.00 ages 7-9 | $265.00 ages 6-7 |

Give young children an early advantage! This class is for ages 7-9 in 2nd-3rd grade (younger ages by special arrangement). This class is not suitable for students going into 4th grade or above (please select an age appropriate class: Just for 9’s or Basic-Standard-Enhanced). Students begin forming good keyboarding habits during this course. Young students learn quickly in our Kids Academy with KEYbird© and TYPEDancing©! Choose from standard Qwerty keyboard layout or Dvorak (taught by special arrangement). Practice outside of class is important—please allot ample time for this. Amount needed will vary by student. The TYPEDancing© video can be viewed as much as is needed for proficiency (or as often as the student wishes). A DVD player is needed.

Ages 7-9 attend five 90 minute sessions. Initially, students learn with game cards and songs. Keyboards are gradually introduced based on the individual’s progress. Activities start with keyboards where letters are visible and move to keyboards with the letters covered—as the student’s ability increases. Students who progress rapidly, through the TYPEDancing for Kids© program, will be issued additional materials to continue their keyboarding journey. Practice, practice, practice! Students will need to practice at home. Please allow adequate time for this activity; varies by student. Practicing at least 30 minutes per day for a month will greatly improve their typing skills. This can be done in 10 or 15 minute increments.

Younger students, ages 6-7, learn to use all of their fingers to prevent developing bad habits. TYPEDancing for Kids©! is a fun way for young kids to learn. Students build dexterity while learning with songs and games on game cards. Keyboard activities are introduced based on individual progress. Classes are 5 sessions for an hour each. This class is scheduled as a 2 or 3 student Form Your Own group, if not on our schedule. At home practice will be done with the TYPEDancing© video and game cards. Consider at least 15 minutes of practice daily as a realistic goal.

“Very helpful to non typers [sic] that need help learning to type… I like KEYTIME.”
