Typeracer is a really nicely designed activity which gives you a text to copy and measures your word speed as you type it into a field. As you type, as small image of a VW Beetle races across the top of the page and measures your WPM typing speed.
If you make any mistakes of spelling or punctuation, you have to correct them before you can continue.
What's also nice about the site, is that you can play without registering. If you do register though you can record your score and even play against opponents and challenge friends. This is great if you have quite competitive students.
This is a great way to get students improving their typing and also thinking about accurate spelling and punctuation and as I said before it's fun and free!
Hope you enjoy it.
