My DS seems to have alot of homework that he needs to submit in typewritten form, and this includes English (Detective story for P5), Social Study, even Science for some of his research work! He had a short session of formal training in typing during his P3 days in his previous school. But he is still typing single finger.
Is there any place that offer typing training for kids? In this information age, to be fast in typing is really an essential tool to be more efficient.
Just sharing my experience being someone who went from 'single-digiter' to '10-finger typist'. Classes are ok, but practice is what really counts. I had joined a school and what I got from there is to place your left hand fingers on 'asdf', right hand on ";lkj". Anything else stretch from the nearest finger - up down, left right. (Hope I'm making sense. )
I see some typing course software available from the library. Not sure if you want to try that out.
