Website Wednesday

I am linking up with Tessa over at Tales from Outside the Classroom for Website Wednesday! The website I chose to blog about is one that has been around for awhile and is a favorite of many teachers in my district: Dance Mat (http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/flash/stage4.shtml). Since our elementary students do not have a "Computer Class" they can visit each week for keyboarding instruction and computer skills, we teachers have to do all of the instruction. Since time is so limited, I like to introduce my students to this website that coaches them through keyboarding skills. It is colorful, animated and the kids L-O-V-E it!
Students can advance to higher levels.
 I love how a keyboard is provided on the screen so the kids aren't looking down at their keyboard.
 There is also an option to have the keyboard covered once students master certain levels.
