 my daughter will be 8 and has her own lap top she plays on, she like all the normal kid websites and games and works the internet pretty well but doesnt really use word and those type of programs. I am thinking of adding in bigger projects this year she would have to research online and write up reports. nothing to big. maybe a page double spaced of a topic we are learning. is there any programs or websites u know of that help teach computer skills to children. maybe a typing or word class.

today I can say I just sat back and was greatful for having the greatest kids I could ask for. I am going to worry less and love a little more. I am going to stop counting the minutes till bed time and start counting the minutes till good night kisses. I am going to stop crying and start laughing. I know together this family can move mountains one rock at a time

There are some typing games here http://www.alfatyping.com/freetypinggames

Otherwise, I like the idea of having her type a report every once in a while, she will learn a lot more about the program through practice.

PS Don't forget powerpoint. My DS loves it! I only gave him like a 15 min demo and he was off and on his own.
