Summer Typing Practice

There are many free resources online to help you practice your typing skills. Two good sites are linked below.

When you practice make sure you follow these tips. Your typing will improve if you do!

  • Use both hands at all times.
  • Keep your hands on the home row keys.
  • Take your time and go slow! Your first goal is to be accurate. If you practice consistently, you will get faster as your accuracy improves!
