Please be sure to provide your left-handed students with left-handed tools. We impede the development of skills and create pervasive challenges to learning when lefties have to survive in a right-handed classroom. Approximately 10% of the world population is left-handed. Therefore, the rule of thumb (left thumb, that is) is keep left-handed tools in your classroom for at least 10% of the maximum number of children your classroom might hold in a given year. We strongly recommend true left-handed scissors and left-handed pencil grips for ages four or five and up to begin with. (30 children max. = 3 sets of left-handed tools.) I'm so glad we found and can share this resource! Happy Day to all of our Left-Handed Friends!
We would LOVE some feedback on your experience with left-handed items, as well as this web site we found. Comments Are Encouraged! :)
