    I'm looking for a website that has a program/game that teaches kids how to type. Any ideas?

    Hi PinkLily...I'm in Canada, too and I don't know much about the program but the middle school I taught at last year used All the Right Type....the kids seemed to love it.

    Type to Learn also has a Junior program that works well for our students.

    This website is the best I've found for free typing practice. Beyond this, Type to Learn is good but not free.

    There is a fun one on neopets called typing terror, but it is probably also banned at school. might get the kids to play at home though if they are into neopets.
