Welcome to Dance Mat Typing, an introduction to touch typing for children aged 7 - 11 years. Each of the 4 levels are divided into 3 stages. Begin at Level 1 and build up your skills gradually through to Level 4. Level 1

  • Stage 2: e i
  • Stage 3: r u
Level 2

  • Stage 4: t y
  • Stage 5: w o
  • Stage 6: q p
Level 3

  • Stage 7: v m
  • Stage 8: b n
  • Stage 9: c ,
Level 4

  • Stage 10: x z '
  • Stage 11: / .
  • Stage 12: Shift keys - how to make capital letters

Stage 1 introduces the home row, and stages 2 - 12 will:

  • Recap the previous lesson
  • Introduce new letters typed with the left and right hands
  • Practise all previously learnt letters
  • Reward the typist with a mini song and dance

Why learn to touch type?
Whenyou can do it well, touch typing is the fastest way to write. Manypeople can soon learn to touch type faster than they can write with apen. The important things to remember are:

  • Use the correct fingers
  • There's no need to rush!
  • Always rest your wrists on the desk
  • You should take a rest, and shake your hands and arms to relax your muscles if you get tired
  • It's important notto look at your hands when you are learning to type. The best way toensure that you don't look at your hands is to cover them up - you canmake a simple box out of cardboard or wood to cover both the keys andyour hands

Youwill need headphones or speakers to enjoy the song and dance in eachgame. The games use the Flash plug-in - if your computer doesn't haveFlash, you can find information on how to download it here, or you can play the alternative interactive versions available at each stage. Worksheets are available for each stage that can be printed out and used offline with a typewriter or computer.
Health and Safety
Sit comfortably with your back up straight and your feet on the ground! Happy typing and let us know what you think!
