Program Summary
Miss Sue's Keyboard Fun

Contains two parts, Keyboard Fun and Spelling Fun

Keyboard Fun encourages children to learn the keyboard, by matching keys to pictures, and to be rewarded with sight and sound. The keyboard layout on the screen is colored to match the keyboard, and upper or lower case letters can be displayed

Spelling Fun takes this a step further, asking the child to type words with the same sights and sounds being presented for each letter. The list of words can be changed easily, so that the week's word list can be practiced. In this way the child learns where the keys are on the keyboard.

Data collection shows what letters are typed, how long it took, and how many errors

I Can Match Capitals A single capital letter is shown, with a choice of two lower case letters. The correct answer is randomly placed to the left or right of the screen. When the student touches the correct lower case letter, they are rewarded with sight and sound to reinforce the letter. You can show the letters in random or in alphabetical order and can change the color of the letters.
I Can Spell Put in a picture of the child and their name: each letter is shown in turn taking up half the screen. The student touches the letter on the screen to see and hear each letter spoken, and finally their name. Or set it to spell common words with their pictures.
I Can Read Aloud ‘Next' button is not displayed until the page has been completely read aloud. All text, visuals and target areas are large. Scan in your own books or create your own, then record your voice reading the book. 
Keyboard Explorer When a student presses any key on the keyboard, the picture and sound for that letter is shown.  This can be used to familiarize the student with the keyboard before moving up to Miss Sue’s Keyboard Fun.
