Free. . .Dance Mat typing.  It's part of many things offered on BBC kids.
Typing Club also isn't horrible (free and paid versions).

The best program I have found after extensive research, however, is Typing
Agent.  The program is great, comes with Coding and Internet safety modules
as well, and they have fantastic customer service.  This is a paid
program.  I use it with my 2nd-4th graders, but it can be used with all
ages.  I really like that you can have kids take a placement test when they
first get started. . .that way the more experienced kids don't have to
start from square one.  I always give the 4th graders the placement test
because they have then had 2 years of formal keyboarding.

Hope this helps.
