Welcome to the CES Technology Home Page!

My focus in the Computer Lab is Keyboarding, Computer Skills, and Integrating Technology in all subject areas. By playing various keyboard games, students should teach their fingers how to keyboard.

Keyboarding Websites

There are many free websites available for learning keyboarding. Below are some of our favorites. Initially, students find the letters on the keyboard, and then they learn the home row, followed by learning all keys. Remember to keep looking at the monitor.

 

Students find the letters on the keyboard while listening to letter names or letter sounds with Keyboard Zoo.

Students find the letters, plus much more with Jungle Junior. Click on Jungle Junior and then Scroll down and click on Get Started. Note: students do not have to start at level 1.

Students like to find the letters on the keyboard by using Keyboard Jump. Click on Keyboard Jump and then click on Easy and All Letters.

Students locate the letters on the keyboard when using Typing Rocket Junior.

As students become familiar with the location of the letters and are ready to go faster, they can use Typing Rocket.

Start with lower case letters and unlock higher levels with Jump Keys.

Home Row and Typing Words 

DanceMat is one of my favorite websites for learning how to Keyboard.

Another site students really enjoy is  Typing Club.

Teach your fingers the home row keys without looking at the screen with Keyboarding Kickstart.

Type words to get to the finish line by joining others with the Owl Planes.

User Name and Password is required for typing.com

Multiplication Websites

Click or type to answer on Flash Cards. (Hint: If you need practice with the 7’s, click on Level 7)

How many facts can you complete in 2 minutes by typing in each answer? (I suggest you begin with level 1)

Play games like Multiplication Mine on ABCYa.com OR race against others with the Space Race.

Play games such as Four in a Row on Multiplication.com OR try to get a goal each time you get a fact correct with a soccer ball.

Solve a Picture Puzzle on MathPlayground.com by dragging the puzzle piece to the correct answer.
