    My son is 8.5 and I purchased Print to Cursive for him.  Regardless of posture and paper placement, he is struggling with copying.  He really doesn’t enjoy it at all.  I think he needs more step-by-step letter formation instruction.

    What have you used for your lefties?


    I’m using the same program with my leftie, but he is a bit older (5th grade).  We held off on cursive because he struggled with manuscript writing.  He is having no trouble with it now.

    I used Cheerful Cursive with my oldest child and it has quite a bit more letter formation help.  It may be what you are looking for.


    My oldest dd (11yo) is a lefty. I used Memoria Press’ New American Cursive with her for just one book and then switched to PenTime Cursive. We liked the New American best, but at $22 per book, I couldn’t justify it.


    My daughter is a leftie. She is almost 14 and really wants to have beautiful handwriting but struggles in this area. There is a handwriting curriculum especially for lefties on Amazon-I think it’s called writing skills for lefties or something like that.

    I’m looking into Barchowsky’s handwriting curriculum myself. They have free videos on their website about teaching handwriting to lefties.
