Typing Turtle is available from the Sugar Labs Activity Library: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/addon/4026.
Typing Turtle is an interactive touch typing program. It gradually introduces the keys on the keyboard through a series of lessons, until the student has learned the entire keyboard. Skills are reinforced with typing games.
Screenshots can be found at the Activity page.
