Typing Learning For Kids
Intermediate Typing Lessons!
By the time your kids reach the intermediate lessons, they are already readily familiar with letters and key placement. They have probably already begun typing short words on their own and can likely do some of what we would call day to day typing on their own.
The intermediate lessons represent a functional explosion of skills, from which a typist can grow to type anything. These lessons are best for those who are readily familiar with basic speed typing and are looking to improve their skills. The lessons teach in groups relying on Left and Right-hand words (words which can be typed with solely the left or right hand), sight and fry words (those which occur at high frequency in the English language and should be recognized with only a quick glance). From there, the lessons move on first to short phrases (like ‘that ball is red’) and then to sentences (like ‘my baby has slept all night’), and finally moves on to proverbs (like ‘A fish always rots from the head down’).
By teaching these more advanced aspects of speech, and building cumulatively, the child gains a better understanding of how the short words and letters from the previous lessons come together to form a sentence or a statement. Unlike the last sections, this section also introduces sentence case, and the need for proper punctuation, encouraging the kids using the program to affirm good writing and language arts habits as well as learning to type and preparing them for various writing projects in their future.
