Work on Your Keyboarding Skills
PPS students are required to spend a minimum of one hour per week throughout the summer practicing the proper keyboarding techniques. During each practice session, students should focus primarily on improving their accuracy, and then they can concentrate on their speed. Students may use the games and websites listed below. Using the "Summer Typing Log," students must keep a record of their practice time, and parents must sign the log after each practice session. For additional copies of the "Summer Typing Log," visit the FORMS section of this website. Have fun while learning to type faster and more accurately!
