Do you want to reward and encourage your students to type faster and more accurately? Improve their typing skills by starting a Typing Club. I wanted my students to type faster and more accurately so I created the Typing Club. Use any typing/keyboarding software or use the suggested websites (included in the download). Students are eligible to make the Typing Club by simply taking timed typing tests.
The Typing Club is an award recognition program and is grouped into 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and so on to encourage students to reach the next Typing Club. There is also a Junior Typing Club for Grades 2 & 3. Student’s names are posted on the Typing Club awards which are posted in the classroom, hallway and/or bulletin board. Students love to see their name up on the Typing Club award and are always asking each other, “Which Typing Club are you in?”
There are few simple rules for "making" the Typing Club. Use the rules included in the download or modify the rules slightly. The Typing Club is perfect for Computer class as well as classes with 1:1 devices. The Typing Club is a great way to calm students down at the start the day, the end the day, or when you have a little extra time in the day.
The Typing Club is a must have for students who touch type . . . and will encourage those who do not touch type to improve on their touch typing skills.
