Keyboarding for the Christian School – Elementary Version
Price: $12.95

P O Box 34183
Fort Worth, TX 76162


This is just an old-fashioned typing book like I used to learn my keyboard and how to type in High School but it is an e-book and spiffed up for use by elementary aged children. There is not all the fuss and busyness of some of the “game-style” typing software -- no blasting rockets and spaceships, just the get down to business of learning. This is perfect for my style of teaching and my youngest student’s style of learning.

My first grader is still struggling with reading and this seems to be more of a chore for her than it ought to but she is warming up to it and I know as her reading progresses, her enthusiasm for learning the keyboard will increase as well. At the moment this course is a work in progress for her.
I love that the typing exercises are Bible verses after the basics are learned. I find that much more interesting than random phrases and sentences.

I highly recommend this course and applaud its back to basics “nuts and bolts” approach to the subject.

  1. Christine,

    I appreciate you taking the time to review Christian Keyboarding products. You may want to have your student try the curriculum again in another six months after she feels more confident in her reading skills. Or, you could read the drill lines to her as she is typing. Which is probably what you remember for learning the basics in typing "back in the day" just as the rest of us did. :)

    I am available for questions and comments at
