Handwriting help!

My husband and I were a little dismayed to discover that our oldest son is left handed. I think are reasons were different for being a little anxious about it. My husband is an artist, and he doesn't know any good artists that are left handed-though I'm sure they are out there! I am a little nervous just thinking of all the years ahead of me to teach a left handed person to do things. As we started working on writing our letters, I knew I needed to get something to help him practice them over and over again. I went to our local Christian Homeschooling bookstore, and discovered these handwriting templates! I got the uppercase and lowercase stencils, and already they have been helping Mosiah a lot to write more neatly. Even though they were a little expensive to me, I didn't care! The school-rite templates are even advertised to help left handed children learn to write. They will definitely be used to help all of our children learn to write.

Do not fear! My husband is an artist and is left-handed, as is my oldest son-5 years old. We are using the Getty-Dubay Italic handwriting books with him and he has beautiful handwriting!
