To practice typing at home, 1st and 2nd grade students can visit Dance Mat Typing.
Students in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade should go to Typing Club. Instructions on how to login are listed below.
Keyboarding Letter to Parents and Families
The school has set up access to a new keyboarding program for 4th, 5th and 6th grades (and some 3rd grade classes) that will assist each student in mastering keyboarding. Students are strongly encouraged to spend time on this program at home, working on their keyboarding skills. The portal to access this program is http://rosecreek.typingclub.com. Students will then be prompted to enter their username and password. For the username, students should enter their first given name and last name initial. (For Example “Sam Smith” would enter: Username: sams.) For the password, students should enter their lunch number. Students have been using this program at school and should be familiar with their own username and password. Please encourage your student to use proper technique and keep their fingers placed in the proper position. (No Pecking)
Dance Mat Typing
Our 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students are encouraged to practice using Dance Mat. They should be familiar with this site. At school we track their progress and are helping them learn correct techniques and fingering.
