Book Description

1 April 2005 1869981804 978-1869981808
The third book of the Left Hand Writing Skills series consolidates the development of good writing habits. The writer can now apply all that has been learned to writing with a pen. Ink is the real test of success for the left-handed writer! First, to create words which are accurately formed and legible, and then to avoid spoiling them by smudging as the left hand follows the pen across the page. Successful smudge-free writing can overcome the frustration of so many left-handers. Essay-writing, homework, and other essential written work can all become a source of satisfaction: no longer a cause of disappointment. The 27 worksheets provide further variety in activities and interest, all linked to handwriting. From early Egyptian tablets to Leonardo's curious mirror-writing, to invitations, shopping lists and menu cards. Fascinating illustrations and full colour presentation once again keep the interest of the left-handed student while the correct left hand writing habits are finally fully absorbed.

Product Description


"Invaluable for left-handers learning how to form their letters and numbers. Beautifully presented, the series makes learning to write fun. For the first time, left-handers will have the advantage over right-handers and won't be overlooked in the classroom. Just having the spine at the top makes it so much easier for the left hand to relax. I would recommend it, with no hesitation, to parents and teachers." Diane G Paul - Broadcaster and author of The Left-hander's Handbook

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 10 Dec 2011
By Jools
I bought the series of these for my 9-year old son who is the only left-hander in the family. They are well thought out products and, even better, he enjoys using them. He's learning writing skills and tips that I wouldn't have a hope of knowing. Thoroughly recommended.

My son has struggles to join up his writing He is 9 years old. This has given us a focus and the reminder to always position the page is working well. So far, so good.

2.0 out of 5 stars not suitable 7 July 2013

I don't think this book will help left handed students. There are no exercises or tips to support improving writing..It could just as easily be written for right handed students. No skills provided, no suggestions; just exercises. Very disappointed..

Bought this for 9 year old. The exercises are a little babyish but he has kept doing them. It has helped him think about how to write smudge proof and he's managing ok with it. Would help to buy a decent left hand pen too.
