Left Hand Writing Skills – Book 1. Fabulous Fine Motor Practice
This is a book specifically designed with young left-handed children in mind. Opening vertically so that the child doesn’t have the left hand caught on the spine of the book, there are icons on each page to show pencil grip and page angle as well as specific letter formation for the left-hander. Advice for parents and teachers is included as well as Top Tips on every page.
The objective of Book 1 is to establish good basic habits of paper positioning and pencil hold, and to develop the fine motor skills needed for accurate, consistent wriitng at a later stage. The book takes the young writer from basic pencil handling and co-ordination exercises through to formation of letters and simple short words each page is an entertaining mix of games and puzzles, which parent and child will enjoy doing together.
*Please note : this book is NOT PHOTOCOPIABLE – there is a fully-photocopiable version in the combined book.*
The handwriting skills book was an excellent resource. When I realised that my son was left handed I was very keen to avoid him having the typical hook style of writing so I invested in the books. They have proved to be invaluable as he is now 8 years old and has lovely, fluent, joined handwriting. He saw the books as a bit of fun as they were so well presented and easy to access without much parent intervention. I can thoroughly recommend them to any parent of a leftie.
