While many students can string sentences and paragraphs together, watching them do it would have your mom’s typing teacher cringing with agony.

Typing is an important skill, even when kids think they know how to do it. After all, students know how to talk when they enter elementary school, but they still need to learn proper grammar and proper English.

Laerning to type the right way will improve spelling, accuracy and speed. It will prepare students for the workforce. Learning the fundamentals of touch typing is also important for students that want to learn how to code and how to program.
