Letter Formations

When your left-handed child first starts writing, they may find it easier to form certain letters of the alphabet their own special way, and you can make writing easier for them by showing them how.

The table below shows the directions in which to form letters for joined up (or "cursive" writing). You will see that some letters have a second, alternative direction which left-handers often find more comfortable. Encourage your child to try both and see which they prefer.

For all children, correct letter formation from the very beginning is the foundation for good handwriting, which is why joined up writing will now be taught in U.K. schools to children from age 4 onwards.
