Type Write

Type Write is a beginning typing program. The home row (middle row of keys) is introduced first, then other letters are introduced one or two at a time, while continually practicing the letters already learned. There are three components used in Type Write: practicing letter combinations, practicing words, and practicing sentences. The sentences are generally in the form of a short story. For example, the sentences for letter "u" tell about a car: "The car's trunk clunks shut. The car's key turns. The car's engine runs. The car puffs fumes and charges ahead in the blinding dust." The use of meaningless nonsense syllables is kept to a bare minimum in this course; the emphasis is on typing actual words, and using them to make sentences that make sense. Instructions and an assignment syllabus are included in this eBook.

From the everyday phenomena of wind and clouds to the awesome, destructive power of lightning, tornados, and hurricanes, children can explore weather in detail with this fascinating science activity book.

More than 40 weather projects are included, such as building a model of the water cycle, creating a tornado in a bottle, calculating dew point, and reading a weather map. Most of the experiments also include ideas for expanding them into full-fledged science fair projects.
