I am excited to tell you about a new find! While creating my oldest sons word processing course, I began to sweat! I had a vision of what I wanted it to be like for him, but with money a rare commodity these days, I have to be firm and fickle about what I purchase and what I create during my own time - and this course is one that I certainly cannot justify purchasing, especially since he knows some, but needs to know a little more.
Perusing the internet late Sunday evening, I began looking up PDF documents of word processing worksheets. After nine pages into a google search, I was truly beginning to fear the worst. Until I found a great website that mentioned a program available for download.
What's that? A glimmer of hope? Yes! Yes it was!
I immediately downloaded the program thinking to myself, if this is a dream, I do not want to wake up before I have it saved to my computer. But it was no dream! This particular program installed in less than 10 minutes and contains all the great little details a home school mom could want, with all the added bells and whistles that are sure to keep the kids eager to do more! And it does!
With the program, you get:
Today, the kids began their first true lesson with Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and I had to practically beg for them to stop learning in order to each lunch. Now they are well on their way to learning to touch type (and for my eldest two, they can now increase their WPM levels). This will be an added skill set they will use for the rest of their life!
If you are wanting your children to learn to touch type without all the risk of unnecessary ads and questionable content, I encourage you to take a moment and visit the website, read the other reviews and decide for yourself if Mavis Beacon is right for your family. I know it is for mine!
Until Next Time,
