Book Description

1 April 2005 1869981782 978-1869981785
The second book of the Left Hand Writing Skills series, containing a further 28 worksheets, begins with revision of the essential letter formation exercises in Book 1. The following worksheets focus on the flow of letters into word formation. Through extensive practice with patterns, different forms of letter-joining and full word formation, the left-handed writer should have begun to establish the fundamental good habits of hold, position and control which handwriting requires. The antics of Pencil Pat and his gang keep up the level of enjoyment and satisfaction as the child works through these exercises.

This is a set of handwriting work-sheets with a few simple tips, well let's be honest, Extremely Few and Very Simple tips, scattered around for left-handed writers. If that is what you need and the style of script suits what is being taught at your school or you wish to abandon your school's script and use the one that's in this book, then this is a good and suitable book of writing worksheets. Don't expect advice for lefties, and don't expect any discussion of writing styles or how to work with your school's style which is likely to be different from the book's style. And there is Nothing Whatsoever on how to manage if your child moves from a school with one style to a school with a different style and the change is disruptive of your child's nascent handwriting.

So, what's the style and is it ok? The style is fine, but may clash with that taught at school. Children can learn new styles and it might even help; but there is also a significant possible risk that a clash between what you teach at home and anything being taught at school will end up confusing your child. If what your child needs is a little help working alongside the teachers at school, then it would be much better to get a copy of the school's handwriting scheme and some work-sheets from school to match it. If you want a clean break and your child is older and no longer getting any help with handwriting, then this book of work-sheets could be good.

The style is mostly but not completely joined - this can make it more legible and is common to several styles. It assumes that cursive (=joined or running) writing is being taught after separate letters, rather than teaching cursive from the start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Left-handed grandson 27 Dec 2011
Until I acquired books 1 and 2 of Left Hand Writing Skills, the written products of my very bright, left-handed grandson were unreadable. He himself was in despair over complaints from his teachers. He has practised, using the strategies suggested in these books, and is making good progress. All Primary School teachers should acquaint themselves with the contents of such texts!

my daughter has enjoyed engaging with this book - we are still using it to support her school work - going well - her teacher has noticed an improvement with her writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left Hand Writing Skills: Book 2 8 Aug 2013
By Joyce Davis - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased this book because I have a grandson who is left handed. The reason that I purchased it is because I wanted him to be encouraged and to know that it is all right to be left handed. I wanted him to know that most children in his class would be right handed. I think that this book helped all of us to realize that being left handed is just as important as being right handed.

1.0 out of 5 stars not for small children 13 Oct 2009
By K. Swenson - Published on Amazon.com

I got this for my little lefty to learn how to write her letters, but when I recieved it I saw that it is for cursive. Of course that is for much older children who already know how to wright left handed. This will do me no good what so ever.
