This unique writing mat is an invaluable training guide for left-handed children. Designed to prevent or correct smudged work, poor pen grip and bad posture, the Left Write Mat is placed on the desk in front of your child and shows the perfect paper position, pen hold and angle of the arm to achieve the most comfortable and effective style of writing as a left-hander. Place paper or workbook over the guidelines and follow the friendly reminders on the mat. Also shows useful reminders of pen grip, position and letter formation chart for left-handers in capitals and lower case alphabet. Also known as a "writing tablet".
Suitable for all ages. This mat is double-sided and shows right-handers positioning and letter formation on the reverse side. It is printed with a laminated finish so it is wipe-clean when used with appropriate pens (please test that a small bit wipes clean OK with your chosen pen before using the whole mat!).
A3 paper size. 420mm x 295mm (17.5 in x 11.75 in).

Useful aid We use this mostly for orienting the paper on the desk, it also has reminders on letter formation. It's great that the flipside is for righthanders, we just turn it over for my other son! (06/05/2014) Caroline -
Left Write Mat Love, love, love this item! Will help granddaughter with the proper positioning of her notepaper. Will also work for her sister, who is right-handed, when she too, learns to write. (01/03/2012) Rosemarie Albert - Canada
Great this has helped my struggling 5 year old boy. I know nothing about being left-handed, so it helps me help him, especially the letter formation guide. Thank you. (22/11/2010) -

Fantastic Product My 6yr old daughter was getting cramp in her hand whilst writing. I purchased two of these, one for home and one for school. It has made a huge difference to her writing and her confidence. (22/11/2010) Katja - Staffordshire
Fantastic Product. Purchased to be used in school. Is very easy to use and with the letter formation along the sides it's perfect for those moments when mirror writing hits. (22/11/2010) -
Excellent Extremely helpful for children - wish I had these when I was growing up! (09/09/2010) -
Excellent We have a 5 year old and became tired of trying to reposition his paper. He can't argue with a mat, and places his paper correctly on it. Hoping it becomes a habit that he carries over into school. (04/03/2011) Kaye - Omaha, NE USA
