Handwriting Lesson Plans for teachers
- for right and left-handed children

Anything Left-Handed are pleased to have been involved with educational supplier Stabilo in the development of an excellent new Key Stage 2 Handwriting Resource Pack. Written in conjunction with the National Handwriting Association, we have created 7 lesson plans tailored to meet the National Literacy Standards for handwriting, and have included plans specifically for left-handed writers.

The pack includes information and lesson plans for the following subjects:

1. Why is handwriting important?
2. What does your handwriting say about you
3. Different writing styles
4. Are you a leftie or a rightie?
5. How neat is your handwriting?
6. Size and spacing
7. Developing speed
