Left handed writing guide mat
We have produced a writing information sheet that can be used as a mat on the child’s desk or table to remind them of the basics for easy left handed writing – paper angle, hand position and grip and letter formations.
You can order this as an A3 size laminated plastic mat for delivery by post (420mm x 295mm (17.5 in x 11.75 in) at £4.95 plus delivery charge or as a download file for £2.95 that you can print for yourself in either A4 or A3 size depending on your printer.
The mat has the same information for a right-handed child on the back in case you need it for another family member – The printed laminated mat for £4.95 is double-sided and the download version included TWO files – both the left-handed and right-handed versions.
