Online Typing Website

  • https://www.typing.com/
    • Typing.com is a free website that has a student and teacher login area that is free to sign up for. They include typing games, typing lessons, and tests. There are also three skill levels, beginner, intermediate and advanced. This is a no-frills program that would be good for children who become easily distracted by too much on the screen or cartoon type characters.

  • https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/articles/z3c6tfr​​​​​​​  
    •  This one was highly recommended by many pediatric Occupational Therapists in a Facebook group I am part of. It includes 7 different levels beginning with the home row and increasing the difficulty as you move along. You are able to create a login on the BBC website, but I am unsure if you are able to save where your students are in each level. So you may need to keep track of that yourself.  
  • https://www.kidztype.com/
    • Kidz Type focuses on levels that begin with the home row keys and get harder as you advance through each level. It does require having Flash Player downloaded on the computer you are using in order to play. There are also lessons, games, quizzes, and tests. It does not require you to have a login to play, but it also doesn't save where you are in the levels, so you would need to keep track of that on your own.

  • https://www.abcya.com/search.htm

    • ABCya! is an education website that includes some typing games on their website. You will need to click the link above and type “typing” into the search bar to find them all. They include suggested grade levels for each game

  • https://www.nitrotype.com/

    • This is a game format for typing that includes races that you can do to compete against different users.
