The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of States working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and Math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers. The PAARC test will be given in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.
To this end, it is important to continue to expose our students to the keyboard so that they are as familiar and proficient as possible to take whatever online line test is given. I have put together a list of typing games which will help kids to hone their keyboarding skills. These fun, free games are a great way to build the foundation that is needed for today’s elementary school curriculum and the future assessment.
Each of the websites below have a wide variety of typing/keyboarding games to aid in building necessary skills:This year the Wyckoff School District has purchased a District License for a website called Typing Pal. Click on the link and all students in grades 2, 3, 4 and 5 have been given usernames and passwords. The login is as follows:Username- FirstLastPassword- Same password as used for students' gmail account
