Handwriting lesson plans for teachers

– for right and left-handed children

imageAnything 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
