We love It is simple, quick, no frills. If you are a google school, the kids use their google log in to sign in


I use that for younger students but 5th - 8th grade, I support ELA by having them type various grammar assignments and highlight or bold or underline the answers. Retyping practice essays. I find these assignments help prepare for Mstep. Try it see if it helps . I get most of the grammar assignments off


I second NitroType and the kids love TypingClub. NitroType is better for turning all the desks to group circles, whereas TypingClub is a more quiet, individ activity.
