Christian Keyboarding ~ Review

How many times have you seen someone pecking at a keyboard?  Maybe you peck at your keyboard!  That's ok!  Christian Keyboarding is here to help your kids and maybe you too!

The purpose in Christian Keyboarding  is not only to teach people to type but to put positive Biblical concepts in front of the student.

Lesson one teaches where to put your fingers.  If you took typing or keyboarding in school, you know all about "home row".  The lesson immediately moves into typing the first 2 letters.

As the lessons progress, they build up to typing sentences such as, "This is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it."

By lesson 30, students are typing whole sections of verses such as Psalm 100.

Here are some samples:  Sample Pages

I absolutely love the idea of Christian Keyboarding!  When I have my children do their cursive or printing, I have them write verses so the concept of typing verses is an easy transition for us.

Features that I like:
  • Easy to understand lessons
  • Self guided concept
  • Short lessons
  • Positive verses
Christian Keyboarding is very thorough.  Not only is the student taught to type words, but other topics are covered also such as:
  • Numbers
  • Margins
  • Headings
  • Creating a table of contents
  • The tab key
  • Eneumerated lists
Price for eBook: $15.95

Christian Keyboarding also has a program for elementary grades.  It is very similar to the version for older students but does have colorful images of the actual keyboard.  (Also included are timed typing and timed writing scales.)

Some concepts covered:
  • Homerow
  • Letters, numbers & symbols
  • Centering
  • Eneumerated lists

Price for eBook:  $12.95

These are both great resources for teaching keyboarding or "typing".  I appreciate the Bible verses and concepts that are throughout this whole program.  These will be wonderful books to have around for years to come.

From the website:

I was not paid to review this product.  All opinions are my own.
