Most of us will produce the bulk of our writing on a computer. The Common Core National Standards for Writing state that by the end of 4th grade all students will be able to word process a full page of text in one sitting (think 35-40 minutes). The program that we use here at GVS is called TypeTo Learn. If you would like to work on your keyboarding skills at home and do not have Type to Learn, you can click on the link below and choose a game to practice.
