Egads! Email!


Tess has begun using email to correspond with her best friend who now lives in Ohio. Her familiarity with computers is pretty limited, she gets about an hour a week on webkinz and that's about it. Her keyboarding skills are nonexistant. The prospect of emailing Emily however prompted Tess to ask for help in how to keyboard with both hands.I showed her the home row and suprervised her first composition, poining out the proper finger positions and also explaining some basic functions like the shift key, hard return, space bar, even the auto spell check (not the auto correct)...she's slow on the keyboard right now but I know this girl; she'll be humming along soon enough.

Hi, Kevin,

Long time, no comment.

I just wanted to mention that there are a few typing games available for free on-line if Tess would be interested in building her skills. Here's a link to one offered by the BBC:

Good luck getting your computer away from her!
