After some revision work on the letter formations from Book 1, these worksheets focus on the flow of letters into word formation. The exercises will help establish the correct habits of hold, position and control that good writing requires. The antics of Pencil Pete and his gang keep up the level of enjoyment and satisfaction as the child works through these exercises.
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.

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.

Worksheet 3 is a good example of the balance between learning to form individual letters and words and the fun exercises which your child will enjoy while practicing their skills.
Worksheet 24 revises the letter F and double FFs and looks at how some letters in words are joined and others are not.
AMAZING! My son has been utterly failed by his school in teaching him to write. They were trying to lump him together with the right handed way of teaching. It's not worked. In 1 month of using these work books his writing is not only legible it's BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much! Helena
