Learning how to write and cut Lefty

Lefty gifts at School…

The biggest concern for me as an OT is that Lefty “hook” that many children develop when they start to write.  Also- why is the cutting so jagged and choppy?  It’s because Righty scissors have the blades set for a Righty!  Many Lefties switch hands to cut because of this. This can be very confusing for a Kindergartner who is really busy trying to strengthen their hand dominance and hand strength.  So some suggestions to help this…

This can be very confusing for a Kindergartner who is really busy trying to improve their hand dominance and hand strength.  So some suggestions to help this… Lefty notebooks with the spirals on the other side (nothing to hook away from, Brilliant!) and Lefty Scissors.

 Lefty scissors can make a big difference when Little Lefties are just learning to cut.  It can also stop your Lefty from switching hands when he or she cuts.  Lefty Notebooks have the spiral on the other side, so it doesn’t get in the way of the lefties arm when writing.  This lefty kit for school includes a notebook, lefty scissors, a Lefty Stabilo pen and a lefty sharpener.  Awesome!

LEFTY GIFTS FOR YOUR LEFTY WITH AN “INKED-UP” HAND:

Again, Lefties are notorious for having a dirty pinky side of the hand.  This is because they write from left to right (as all English Language writers do) and the ink smudges on the pinky side of the hand as they move to the right to write the next word.  This contributes to the “hook” so commonly seen in Lefties.    Most adult Lefties are very picky about what kind of pen they use.   Gel pens are best because the ink dries quickly.  So here are some lefty gifts for your inky Lefty:

 LEFTY GIFTS FOR Lefties in the Kitchen…. Uh-oh.

I don’t mean to generalize, but if you do a bit of research you will read that Lefties can be clumsy.  Righties can be clumsy too, so the stereotype really stinks.  Especially because Lefties live in a Right handed world.  Simple everyday tasks like cooking dinner or making coffee can involve a right handed tool like a Can Opener.

Here are some cute Lefty Gifts ideas to help our your Loveable Lefty in the Kitchen:

    Any ideas/tricks for a child who doesn’t erase fully? Will erase very softly and leave majority of writing on paper and then rewrite overtop and who paper is very messy. Is a left handed student as well.
