For unfamiliar words, I would turn to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary online, to the Oxford Dictionary online, or to a general "word-of-the-day" e-mail list for which one can sign up to get daily messages with new vocabulary. Not even a native speaker will likely know all of the words that one receives in the e-mails of words each day. Students should pay close attention to the etymologies of words. An etymology is an explanation of where a word came from and possibly how it changed in both form and sound over a long period of time. The study of the origins of words makes a challenging language like English all the more fun because it links the language to historical origins and to various cultures.
There are different types of handwriting styles in two categories: Manuscript and Cursive. I remember during first and second grades, using the white tablet paper sectioned by solid blue and red lines, with dashes of a blue line running through the middle of the two. The area between the line of dashes down to the solid red line at the bottom of the section was the perimeter for small letters. The range between the solid blue top line and solid red bottom line was the designated area to write capital letters. The continuous development in personal penmanship brought a sense of pride in your written work.
When your students are playing the typing game you have chosen, do spend some time monitoring them to make sure they are using correct typing techniques. Some of the typing games that are aimed at younger kids can be done with one or two fingers, without using the keyboard correctly. If the students are using the games this way, they might as well not be using them at all, because they are learning improper techniques while using the educational software.
