To learn typing is a small step for some people. I learned it in two weeks and know how to use my ten fingers. But for someone, it is tooooo difficult to use all ten fingers. They just use the index one, like my elder daughter, Grace.
Now I want to introduce these seven sites can help you. And also I would like let Grace try every each site. Let her choose the one suitable for 7 years old kids.
