FREEBEE FRIDAY: Penguin, Typing Teacher

Tux typing For a kid, learning to type can be as hard as learning to form letters, but a well-meaning penguin can help with the TuxTyping program. There are 8 separate lessons on the basics of keyboarding but the fun really starts with the program’s games that help students identify and reinforce which keys go with which letters. It has Easy, Medium and Hard settings as well as a way to silence the audio. The 12.6MB download of the program is a freebee that works with Windows, Macs and Linux computers.
