Filling your student's mind with God's Word while learning typing skills!
"I didn't want "fluff" and I didn't want "boring". I just wanted something simple and straight to the point.
Enter Keyboarding for the Christian School by Leanne Beitel. This program arrived just in time to satisfy my
pickiness every requirement. (I love it when that happens!) It is an e-book program that teaches the touch typing technique. The lessons and drills are reminiscent of my old high school keyboarding classes, which I always enjoyed. There isn't anything "fluffy" or "silly" about these e-books at all; just straightforward, honest typing. Perfect!
Thank you, Leanne Beitel for creating such an easy to use program. :)
We give both versions of Keyboarding for the Christian School two delighted thumbs up"!
"I love the accessibility of e-books and the speed they are delivered to your inbox, but overall I am not a fan. That being said our family probably would have missed out on this delightful, extremely inexpensive homeschool resource had it not been offered to us for review.
I avoided the whole printing issue by keeping the courses on my computer. They arrived in PDF format by email, which I organized in a special file in Outlook. When my students needed to work on their keyboarding lessons they simply found the email, opened up the PDF and proceeded. Because I have a laptop MAC and a desktop PC I didn’t want to create a Word document on my desktop thus tying us down to home use only. Remembering the accessibility of Google Docs we created two separate Word documents on-line, one for each student, and were ready to begin our lessons.
Her daughter Sierra said, "I liked it. I like how you get to type on the computer. The lesson on the computer can tell you what to do for directions so you won't forget. Learning to type makes me feel like I’m a big kid. I’m excited I am learning to type so I can type when I move on to older grades.”
"Elizabeth and I have really been enjoying using the elementary version of this product. The lessons are easy to follow, engaging and bring great results. Elizabeth will say "look mom I'm typing like you". I had used another popular product to teach Jennifer how to type. But I love that this product uses Bible verses for practice. Ms. Beitel is friendly and a great teacher. Her customer service is personable and prompt."
"the curriculum is super easy to implement and compares quite well with the syllabus of the keyboarding class at our local public school (but it is Christian in content and includes NIV verses). It is quite thorough and I am pleased to say that author Leanne Beitel has created a great product that (in my opinion) matches the requirements for high school credit in my state."
"readability of the font and the actual text supplied for practice...appreciated the author's thoroughness in addressing useful and common correspondence format" found on http://www.thehomeschoolmagazine.com/Homeschool_Reviews/2282.php
"This book covers not only learning to type, but how to set margins and so on in a word processor. It's also a business class, teaching the kids how to create a business letter, how to follow stylesheets such as MLA and APA, how to create a bibliography, how to format envelopes, and how to read proofreaders' marks.
The typing exercises include not only Bible excerpts, but also an uplifting story about an early Christian, and some evangelical material. This book can be a welcome addition to your home school."
"I love your keyboarding program! We have tried some computer programs in the past, but (her son) gets more involved in the game end of it and wasn't really learning the keyboard. With your program he is actually learning the keys. (her son) likes it, too. A lot of programs today try to jazz things up too much, and the learning is lost. With some subjects, the old-fashioned way of learning is still the best."
"My daughter is enjoying herself! I LOVE your courses!"
"My children are learning their keyboards, so much better than they did from the typing games."
"Thanks so much for the excellent service."
"students who recently began using Keyboarding for the Christian School reported that they enjoyed the first several lessons and were anxious to continue."
