A Mavis Beacon typing tutor for very young children.

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing! for Kids encourages students to discover new skills and concepts. Learning how to type not only allows students to communicate in new ways and to explore multimedia, but also helps them to:

  • Develop computer skills
  • Enhance fine motor skills on the keyboard
  • Coordinate hand and eye movements
  • Learn letters and some punctuation marks
  • Build language, vocabulary, and communication skills
  • Develop cooperative learning skills

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing! for Kids presents typing basics, including fingering. Because this program was designed for young students with small hands and fingers, the keys taught are limited to the letters, the colon, the semicolon, and the space bar. The shift key is optional. The program introduces students to the Home Row, Top Row, and Bottom Row keys. The Getting Started section offers suggestions and strategies for using computers, the Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing! for Kids program, and the Activities included in this guide.
