Manage lesson plans

Assignments on TypingClub are called lesson plans. There are several lesson plans available for you to use. In addition, our lesson plan editor allows you to easily create your own lesson plans from scratch, incorporate topics that students are currently learning in class, and share your lesson plans with other teachers in your account.

Lesson plans available on TypingClub

The various lesson plans offered by TypingClub can be found in the main menu under a tab labeled Lesson Plans.

The library contains our flagship lesson plan Typing Jungle, a fun-filled curriculum for kindergarten students called Jungle Junior, DC Typing to learn about how to be a good digital citizen through typing, a short typing course Typing Basics, a lesson plan for typing Dvorak, lesson plans for one-handed typists, lesson plans to learn to type in multiple foreign languages, and stories from our Animated Story Typing series called Ava and The Rabbit, Going Solo, The Perfect Match, and Sam & Luna. Any of these lesson plans can be used at no additional cost.

Default lesson plan - Typing Jungle

The default lesson plan for every class and account is Typing Jungle. The default lesson plan is the activity that will be automatically assigned to all classes in your account. If you prefer to use a different lesson plan as the default in your account, remember to make the change before you upload your classes. To view or update your default lesson plan, go to Lesson Plans Settings.

In Typing Jungle, the first lessons instruct students to practice typing the J and F keys. These two keys are the foundation of touch typing (notice your keyboard has bumps on those letters). Each subsequent lesson introduces students to new letters, the Shift key, numbers, symbols, and motivates students to increase typing accuracy and speed. With over 650 in-house designed lessons, Typing Jungle is a comprehensive resource for K-12 students and the best way to teach touch typing. It provides an extensive curriculum that includes varied typing experiences, games, and videos, as well as multiple motivational tools.

Notice: Note that you can assign a different default lesson plan for each grade level.
