    I used Mavis Beacon (version now obsolete) years ago with my now-18 yr old son and he loved it!

    My friend likes the Jumpstart series typing program, but I'm not sure about grade levels with it.

    Here is a freebie that was shared with me:

    A couple I have found in the past few days as I have been doing a similar search:

    The following two are free:

    The following one looks interesting, especially for boys, and you can do a 60-minute trial:

    My kids have been using Type To Learn 3. They seem to like it.
