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.
