What is your advice about? Left-handed students
1: If sitting in pairs side by side, place the left-handed student on the left, so that elbows don’t lock.
2: Take paper out of ring binders for easier access. Likewise spiral notebooks.
3: Their handwriting may be poor as they immediately cover up what they are writing. This often encourages “claw hand” for writing.
4: Ink is a nightmare, as it smudges. Berol Handwriting pens are best, as they have a very quick drying ink.
5: Left-handed scissors are really hard to use, even for lefties. Don’t offer them unless specifically requested.
