Keyboard Template to download & print
http://www.teachnet.com/graphics/powertools/neattools/keyboard.pdf
From Teachnet - a keyboard for you to download FREE and print. It is set up as 8.5x14 inches so that it may be printed "actual size" on legal paper, if your printer will do this. Otherwise, just print it to fit and enlarge it on a copier. \
The keyboard is designed as a blackline, so you may also have students color in the resting position keys."

Animated Beginning Typing
http://www.flixprod.com/typing.html
Animated Beginning Typing : - Is designed for young typists (grades Pre-K to 3rd), and teaches proper typing technique for the letter keys. Sound effects and animation are used to make learning to type fun (and funny). Help is given with an animated tutorial, a screen to show proper fingering, and an on-screen keyboard which highlights the correct key when needed.
Because of the program's design - no arcade distractions and only one element is presented at a time - it is a good choice for beginning typists or children with dysgraphia or other special learning needs.
There are three games in the program. "Jumping Letters" is designed for very young students, and can be played at any pace. Each correctly typed letter is rewarded with the letter being removed by an animated "critter" chosen by the pupil. When 10 letters are completed (context- sensitive help insures success), the child gets a silly cartoon.
