Left handed writing skills is a new series of books for left handed children with guidelines for parents and teachers. It is the first set of books ever to focus just on left-handers and has been written by Mark and Heather Stewart, who have a left-handed son of their own and have been working with lefthanders form many years. They have created an invaluable resource for left-handers learning how to form their letters and numbers.

Beautifully presented, the series makes learning to write fun in gradual steps. The pages are bound from the top of each worksheet allowing for the left hand to relax and meet a level surface with no obstacles.

Book 1 - Fabulous Fine Motor Practice

The objective of book 1 of this series is to establish good basic habits of paper positioning and pencil hold and to develop the fine motor skills needed for accurate and consistent writing at a later stage.

The book takes the young writer from basic pencil handing 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.

Billy Beetle, Sam Spider, Willie Woodlouse and Sally Snail lead the the left-handed child through the series of enjoyable worksheets designed to give the child the best possible start in learning to write.

The book is A4 in size (210 x 297mm) and includes guidance notes on writing technique and skills development plus 28 full colour worksheets, each with guidance and tips. There is also a lined practice sheet that you can photocopy and a reference guide to the correct left-handed formation of all the letters and numbers. You can see some sample pages from the book below.

Worksheet 9 is a good example of the balance between learning to form individual letters and fun exercises which your child will enjoy while practicing their skills.

On this page your child will learn how to make the shape of the letter 'S'. To keep the child's interest and to help them practice the letter 's' there is an exercise at the bottom of the sheet.


Worksheet 12 shows the child how to create the letter 't'. The way in which the child learns the different shapes is fun and easy to follow.
