Read Write & Type

We recently was given a subsciption of Read Write & Type from Talking Fingers. Their approach is based on the simple idea that text is speech made visible. Then we use our fingers to represent those sounds on paper.
It is an online learning system that includes phonics, spelling, keyboarding and word processing.
The cost break down:
•1 user $35.00
•2 users $55.00
•3 users $70.00
•4 users $85.00
•5 users $100.00
My daughter is really enjoying this, it is perfect for her age and she has been wanting to learn to type. I love the fact that the program uses sound and not the letter so they are getting a phonic lesson too. The program starts with one letter and then two and so on. There is a way to keep track of what they have mastered but even if you have to help the younger ones and they pass with your help you can have them practice as much as you want on any particular level. My 2nd grader who has learning issues does struggle with it, he can not keep his hands right, it stresses him and he struggles with getting the directions the first time but you can have them repeated. I still believe if he keeps working at it,it would help him a lot, he just needs to go more slowly and practice more. He doesn’t usually enjoy computer time the way my other children do. I really love how you truly can learn to read and type, most typing programs are for older children but if your children can learn early what an advantage! The characters are really cute and the graphics good. There is a free demo well worth trying out.
They also have other games such as:
•Wordy Qwerty
•Jingle Spells
