Are you thinking about covering touch typing in your homeschool but hate the ads on the free websites? Well, I have found the answer. Typesy is without question, the best homeschool touch typing for kids program we have tried. Carry on reading for our honest Typesy review.

Disclosure:  I received free access to Typesy and was compensated for my time. All opinions are 100% honest & I wasn’t required to post a positive review.

I was looking for a great touch typing for kids course that was available online that was affordable and not full of ads. More importantly, though I was looking for something that was fun.

Covering touch typing in your homeschool day is so important. Just think how much quicker they will be doing their work!

Touch typing is surprisingly not part of the UK national curriculum so unless you homeschool or encourage your kids to learn at home, they will not develop these amazing skills. As we homeschool though I have decided to incorporate it into our day.

I can touch type, through trial and error, and although I am still not great at it, it has saved me so much time professionally. I have not always been a full time blogger I was previously a Finance Director. So typing board reports in a timely manner were incredibly important. What I love about incorporating typing into our homeschool day, is by the time Freddie goes to university he will already have the ability to touch type. All thanks to Typesy, check them out for yourself here.

What I really love about this, is there are hundreds and hundreds of different lessons to take. The different lesson plans consist of:

  • Beginners Lessons
  • Build Accuracy
  • Build Speed
  • Power Speed & Accuracy
  • Mega Speed & Accuracy
  • Fast Dictation Typing
  • Master the Keyboard
  • Quick Revision
  • Bonus Lessons

Within each typing section, there are at least 4 different lessons, each taking approximately 6 minutes each.

Learning to touch type with Typesy Typing Program

To start with of course Freddie jumped straight into the beginners class. It is very repetitive. However, at the bottom of each screen, it shows you the correct finger placement. Learning how to touch type, however, is always repetitive so this was something we expected.

The first time Freddie tried it, he had such a smile on his face. “Look mummy I am doing it!”

Touch Typing for Kids – Games

Not only does Typesy have typing lessons, but it also has great fun kids typing games. As Freddie is only 9 and like most kids, absolutely loves computer games. This was a winner! The typing games were also broken down into sections depending on what you wanted to learn. Be it accuracy, speed, keyboard skills, or keyboard fun.

Typing Improvements with Typesy

On the home screen, you can see the progress made. Typing speed and typing accuracy, plus improvements made. It is great, I have tried some of the lessons and although I thought I was good at touch typing, I realized I rely very heavily on auto-correct!
