Beth:
 My right handed kids" I tell them to hold a flat nibbed pen (speedball) at a
1:00 degree angle and I check their hand as I go about the room. They write
abc's for one day. Left handed students I tell them to do the opposite 11:00
and hold they're hand in closer, ((Or whatever feels comfortable to them)
Lefties have to find their own way much like a leftie learning to play the
clarinet.
    They might have to rotate the paper a little too, but give them an extra
period to find their spot, much like a flutist has to find the their spot to
blow into the flute to get a decent sound.
