Left Hand Writing Skills Fabulous Fine Motor Practice by Mark Stewart, Heather Stewart


Left Hand Writing Skills Fabulous Fine Motor Practice by Mark Stewart, Heather Stewart

The objectives of Book 1 are to establish good basic habits of paper positioning and pencil hold, and to develop the fine motor skills needed for accurate, consistent writing. The book takes the young writer from basic pencil handling and co-ordination exercises through to formation of letters and simple short words. The 28 worksheets contain an entertaining mix of games and puzzles, which parents (or grandparents!) and child will enjoy doing together. Billy Beetle, Sam Spider, Willie Woodlouse and Sally Snail lead the left-handed child through the worksheets. The illustrations are aimed primarily at the 6-7 year-old, when many left-handed children become more conscious of the difference between their writing style and that of their right-handed peers. However, the overall design is suitable for any age: we've heard from grateful users nearer to retirement age than to next year's Year 2...


An excellent series, John Clare Telegraph. A unique, much needed resource which will help left-handed children avoid or overcome many common handwriting difficulties. Highly recommended. Lauren Milsom - Left-Handers Club.
